Just getting started with a Maker Space Lab or a Maker Space Station in your general classroom? This set of task cards has everything you need! As students work through these tasks, they will become familiar with the contents of your STEM/STEAM boxes and will become hands-on makers! Get them used to working with recycled materials to create new inventions! Definitely a great choice before starting the project based work of the Maker Tasks, also found in the Maker Space Start-Up Kit.

This resource includes three levels of task cards - Green is for most of your class, working as a group or independently. The Purple level provides a scaffold for those needing more direction and suggestions. The Blue level is for your most independent learners, the true geniuses of Genious Hour. 

These cards also can add some critical thinking with fun to your sub plans!

Here's what you'll get:

  • Directions for setting up a classroom maker space

  • Suggestions for keeping your maker space running smoothly

  • Ways to celebrate the creations of your students

  • LIsts of what to include in your STEAM boxes and how to get donations for them

  • 36 leveled task cards (12 in each level) in full color and in grayscale

  • Card backs for each level in full color and in grayscale

Your young scientists and engineers will love dreaming, planning, inventing, testing, and readying their creations for sharing with others. They'll be out of their seats, getting their hands into building supplies, and talking about their creations.

All of these activities use materials readily available as recyclables in most classrooms and homes. 

Prep is quick and easy... Just print the cards, cut and laminate once and use them over and over for years!
