Product Description
Halloween STEM Challenge (Snake Roller Coaster Halloween STEM Activity)

This resource is a part of this spook-tacular HALLOWEEN STEM BUNDLE!

This Snake Roller Coaster STEM Challenge is perfect for Halloween! It’s a fun, creative, and engaging way to get your students designing and building during this time of year.

Challenge your students to design and build a free-standing snake roller coaster out of tissue boxes, paper plates, toilet roll tubes, ping pong ball, and tape, or you can modify the task and include any other materials you would like students to use. You can make the task an open-ended one by just giving them the materials and letting them come up with their own designs or show them the picture and/or video of the finished snake roller coaster that I included.

After making the snake roller coaster, have students test their work by rolling a ping pong ball. Emphasize that the ball has to roll all the way down and not stop along the way. Have them also build a small barrier to stop the ball from rolling away. Give students time to improve their work and reflect.

If you have orange tape, have students use it. They can also choose to paint the snake roller coaster with realistic or Halloween colors (black, orange, and purple) or stick Halloween stickers onto it.

Students can use the included vocabulary, and planning and reflection sheets to guide their learning. Please see Ideas for STE(A)M Links for extension activities that you can do.

Please see PREVIEW for a better look of ALL the included pages in this resource. Colored and blackline versions of sheets are included, as well as pages with alternate English spelling (Canadian/UK/Australian).

Thanks for your interest in my Halloween STEM Challenge. Thanks for being a blessing!
