Give your little leprechauns a chance to see just how hard it is to "Grab the Gold" with this STEM challenge. Using the listed materials, students will create, use, and compare two tools for picking up and stacking coins. They will discover how the angle of each tool and the pressure/tension on the clothespins affects each tool's effectiveness.
Included in this pack are:
-- Printable student challenge card
-- Teacher materials list
-- Written and photo directions for creating "gold grabbers"
-- Black and white AND color options for work mat
-- Pre-Activity guide
-- Engineering Design Process flow-chart for student record keeping
-- Self-assessment/Reflection page (differentiated for grades K-1 or 2-5)
-- Open-ended writing page for follow-up or related activities (differentiated for grades K-1 or 2-5)
