Task Cards for Maker Spaces- SET 2

In the Classroom or during Distance Learning

STEM SPARKS™ task cards are the perfect tool to promote creative thinking with your students. The STEM SPARKS™ can be used in centers, for a discussion, in a virtual classroom, or sent home in a packet for homework or a family activity.

Get Caught Engineering® loves the Maker Movement and likes to provide students time to explore materials and think about ideas. Inventors do a lot of making, tinkering, exploring, engineering, researching and just pondering the question “what if…? The cards promote that same type of thinking for your class.

In SET 2 we have put together 36 ready-to-go task cards of invention challenges for the class. Students can draw their answers, write about a solution, or build a prototype. The cards provide “SPARKS” to engage your class in creative thinking. There are:

*36 challenge task cards

*blank cards to add your or students' ideas

*a rubric

**a student reflection page

*inquiry questions

*student job cards

*and an introduction to the engineering design process for the teacher.
