Product Description

  • Student Answer Page
  • 36 Task Cards

How to Play:

Students will earn toothpicks for their answers by answering a task card, then they will check their answer, and take the amount of toothpicks according to the card (1-2 toothpicks).

Students will then use the toothpicks to engineer a stand to hold a cauldron. Students will then measure the strength of their stand with gummies. You can also substitute marshmallows for play-dough.

*You do not tell students the challenge until AFTER they have completed all 36 task cards. Once they have earned their toothpicks, you will display the challenge and the students will begin to engineer.*

Materials:

I chose simple materials for this STEM challenge to keep supplies easy to find and cheap. You will need:

  • Toothpicks
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Gummies
  • Miniature Cauldrons (I found mine in the dollar section at Target)
