If you are looking for a STEM and geography resource, or are celebrating any international sporting events, this is a great set to add to your toolbox!

If you were thinking of trying STEM Fridays or Maker Mondays, or you need something more engaging for your early finishers than worksheets or reading, this is the resource for you. Not only will your students be working creatively to solve problems, they will be reading, writing, and using math skills.

Why use STEM Mats?
STEM Mats are easy to set up. There are hundreds of building challenge possibilities because each mat has design criteria spinners. A student can repeat the STEM mat challenge and end up with a totally different design. Not only does this make it different from other STEM challenges, but they also won't be comparing themselves to others.

What materials will I need?
You will need building bricks / building blocks. That does not mean you need to purchase expensive ones! I have found asking for donations works very well. You can even see if your local library has a building club and would be willing to lend you a bin of bricks. There are also numerous compatible bricks out there that are not made by the expensive brand. Check Target for deals on these types of bricks.

Metric measurements are now included where applicable!
