Looking for something higher up in blooms taxonomy? Why not have your students CREATE something for Famous Americans? In this STEM activity students are given a challenge to create a Famous American suitcase (from a cereal box)! We used our brand new Makerspace for this. This project integrates multiple areas - social studies, writing/language arts and math measurement.
Included in this document are:
-Design Challenge sheet ( I printed them off on colored paper and had table partners share)
-Solution 1 and Solution 2 sheet (I had students work in pairs - each came up with a solution and included what materials they would use, and what symbols they should make etc.)
-STEM Reflection Sheet for students to reflect on the challenge, think about how they worked with their partner, and a simple yes/no rubric for them to fill out (asking whether or not they included certain aspects)
I included 2 different challenge sheets - one with 2nd grade SOLS for my Virginia fans AND one with the standards/grade/technology section left blank. Happy Creating!
