    Integrate STEM in your classroom all year!

    Engage your students in a fun and unique way! STEM Projects are perfect for helping students learn to work cooperatively in small groups and growing on their own.

    Each STEM challenge begins with a letter written to students explaining a problem they must solve using a specific set of simple materials you have in your classroom. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

    The Entire year of STEM Challenges is excellent tool for a STEM Club or a weekly STEM activity in your classroom! These engaging Elementary STEM challenges align with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).

    Each Challenge Includes:

    • Teacher and Student Instructions (With Photos)
    • Student Planning Pages
    • STEM Journal
    • Reflection Pages
    • NGSS Standards
    • TpT Digital Version for Distance Learning with Google Classroom

    Digital Activity:

    To use Easel for Distance Learning, select "Open in Easel" on each individual product listing. Works with computers, laptops, chromebooks, ipads, and tablets.

    What teachers are saying about this resource!

    "This is such a wonderful resource! My co-teacher and I implemented a STEM time into our second grade classrooms this year, and this was perfect! Great challenges for groups of students to complete! Since these are seasonal, I often used many of them on party days, or early out days before breaks. Thank you so much!"

    "WOW! These are such cute ideas. My students enjoy doing STEM activities but love them even more when they are holiday themed. I cannot wait to get these printed off and let the students work with them. Thank you so much for sharing!"

    "I am so very excited to use these STEM activities with my High Ability firsties! The first few activities we've tried have been absolutely phenomenal!"

    "Very helpful for me so I can start doing regular STEM projects in my class."

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
    Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
    Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs. Examples of human problems that can be solved by mimicking plant or animal solutions could include designing clothing or equipment to protect bicyclists by mimicking turtle shells, acorn shells, and animal scales; stabilizing structures by mimicking animal tails and roots on plants; keeping out intruders by mimicking thorns on branches and animal quills; and, detecting intruders by mimicking eyes and ears.
    Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
    Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. Examples could include an unbalanced force on one side of a ball can make it start moving; and, balanced forces pushing on a box from both sides will not produce any motion at all. Assessment is limited to one variable at a time: number, size, or direction of forces. Assessment does not include quantitative force size, only qualitative and relative. Assessment is limited to gravity being addressed as a force that pulls objects down.
