This STEM activity is a great group activity for your students. The challenge in this activity is to design a more efficient parachute to jump out of the Battle Bus. The students need to work together to complete the challenge and experiment given. This Fortnite activity is perfect for a back to school activity or all year around.
You do not need to know what Fortnite is (your students will) to do this challenge, but this will earn you your kids respect and you will be that "cool" teacher.
Included in this resource are teachers notes, student questions, the experiment, a PowerPoint on the history of flight and comprehension questions to go with the presentation. Everything you need to make a fun filled activity with your students.
