What are STEM Tales?

STEM tales are a series of STEM challenges that are accessible for your youngest budding engineers; they use a fairy tale that your students are likely already familiar with. By adding in a story element, those students that might typically shy away from STEM activities may find joy in transporting themselves into a story to solve a problem.

Contents

  • Instructions and sample images
  • 8-page short story book to guide your students through the engineering design process
  • Printable characters
  • Follow up activity
  • Coloring page
  • Rubric
  • Certificate of completion

Why STEM Tales?

STEM tales are easy to implement, whether you are new to STEM or a seasoned STEM educator. Each story guides the student through the engineering design process seamlessly. Students record their work as they go and complete the story in the process.

What will I need to complete this activity?

Printable characters are included in the resource. You will need recyclable materials or building items, such as blocks and craft sticks, as well as some coins or washers. I always try to design my STEM activities to be budget-friendly, and always encourage teachers to use the items they have on hand.

What Teachers Are Saying

★★★★★ "So engaging and hands on. This was a project a lot of my students had success with which helped them build confidence. Great product!!!"

★★★★★ "My students had fun making a bed! We used all kinds of materials and the kids loved putting Goldilocks on at the end to see if they were successful."

★★★★★ "Super fun activity. I used this with K-4 and was able to change the difficulty of the activity to meet my kids capabilities by altering the types of materials that I allowed the students to use."
