Enjoy four Lego STEM/STEAM challenge products bundled together for a discounted price. Included in this bundle are other products from my TpT store:
1. 120 Lego STEM/STEAM Challenge Task Cards and Mini Journal:
Enjoy 120 Lego STEAM/STEM challenge task cards! There are 120 challenges, each on their own card, in black and white for easy printing. Pick and choose the challenges you and your students use each day, based on the needs of your class!
In our classroom, I printed the cards on card stock and then laminated. I punched a hole in the cards and put them on a binder ring so kids can flip through and choose the card they would like to try with a tub of Legos we have in the classroom. In summer school, I placed one task card on a pencil box using tape and then put all materials needed inside that pencil case for students to use easily and independently.
Materials required: Legos, rubber bands, marbles, empty glue bottles, water, containers, pennies, marshmallows, matchbox cards, a fan.
Included are three mini journals for planning, reflecting, and challenges. There are lined pages, pages with lines and space to draw a picture, and pages with lines/a box for drawing a picture/directions. Simply choose the cover you like, choose the pages you'd like inside, and print double-sided, flip on the short side. Just be sure to use an even number of pages.
Some challenges include: building different 2D and 3D shapes, saving your friends from a deserted island by building a boat, designing a race track for a matchbox car, helping the mail carrier deliver his mail when his truck broke down, building a stronger fence to keep a wolf out of the pig pen, and designing different scenes to represent different seasons. There is something for everyone!
2. STEM/STEAM Lego Math Challenges:
All of the challenges included on math concepts and are ideal for math centers in the elementary classroom. Included in this pack:
-120 math task cards to use with Legos
These are focused on multiplication facts, basic benchmark fraction practice, symmetry, geometry (2D and 3D shapes), arrays, repeated addition, tangrams, patterns, reading graphs, and creating bar graphs.
-3 mini journals (Reflection, Planning, and Challenges) with lined pages and picture pages for students of all learning levels
-What's the Rule? Game with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
-3 versions of a Greater Than Less Than game
3. Lego Writing Challenges:
Included are 21 different full page writing prompts to use with Lego pieces. Each of the 21 challenges feature 3 different pages to use for a variety or written response, drawing, and planning. These pages are available in two versions, numbered and without numbers, so you can use the challenges in any order you would like.
Personally, I enjoy using these Lego writing challenge full pages in two ways. I will either bind all 21 together in a book with our school binding machine, or I will copy one challenge per week as an option for Work on Writing during our Daily Five block of time.
In addition to full page writing prompts, there are Lego writing task cards and a mini book to use for each individual child. The mini books are a lot of fun, and my students seem to write even more with a mini book!

Enjoy 11 fascinating experiments centered around Legos! Each experiment includes teacher directions, essential questions, materials pages, and multiple versions of the experiment student pages for easy differentiation. There are also task card versions of the experiment questions.
