Engineer a Pumpkin House
A Pumpkin STEM Activity!
A November Challenge for your Class!
Your students have won a truckload of pumpkins. What to do with all that squash? Let’s build a pumpkin playhouse! Using pumpkin candies students will create a prototype for the structure. Students will use their critical thinking and cooperative strategies as well as apply structural and material engineering and measurement skills. Included in the packet are student pages, teacher notes, role cards, a rubric, a reflection page, engineering design process poster and inquiry questions.
This activity is also in the November STEM Challenges bundle
