Description

Earth Day is April 22nd this year! This STEM challenge incorporates recycling just in time for Earth Day! After reading "Just a Dream" by Chris Van Allsburg students will be challenged to build a mechanical grabber that can help one to pick up trash to make our community a litter free place! What better way to spend Earth Day then spending time cleaning up the school community, right?

This product contains: the engineering design process model as an anchor chart, the lesson plan, teacher preparation and tip page, the challenge, and a five page student lab book to use throughout the STEM challenge.

You will need a few supplies in addition to this package. This includes: metal coat hangers, paint sticks, popsicle sticks, tape, and rubber bands. I visited my local dry cleaner and paint store and they donated the hangers and sticks to my classroom for free.
