Introduce students to STEM or Project Based Learning with The Box Challenge. Everything you need is included: Parent supply request, planning pages, information sheets, student budget pages, student evaluation sheets, ideas to get started and more! In this challenge, students will be given a simple cardboard box and asked to make something new with it. They may "buy" a few items to help them in the challenge while sticking to a budget. With their box, they may choose to make something use, fun or beautiful. The student pages that accompany the project are included. This STEM Project is a great activity to get you and your students immersed in Project Based Learning.
