Product Description
All the ghosts are having a competition to see who can stay in the air the longest! Students will use what they know about forces and how different materials act when dropped to create a ghost that floats to the ground as slowly as possible. This STEM challenge includes every component of a true "STEM" challenge.

-Students think like a scientist as they identify the goal of the challenge. They will dig into their prior knowledge and past experiences regarding forces and how different materials fall when dropped.

-Students collect data and make observations like a scientist as they test their ghost designs.

-Students communicate their results like a scientist at the end of the challenge by writing a reflection paragraph about the experience.

-Students use technology to learn and take notes about forces and different materials before working on their ghost designs.

-Students think like an engineer to create a detailed and labeled design of their ghost prior to building.

-Students think like an engineer as they construct their design. Students have the opportunity to problem solve as they build if they find that their original idea will not work.

-Students use math to calculate the average time it took for their ghost to reach the ground from multiple trials.

-Students will also use math to answer three extension questions that get them thinking about what they learned in the challenge and beyond.

-Detailed notes for the teacher and implementation ideas included if you wish to use them!
