Angry Birds are FUN!
This STEM Challenge is an engaging activity that inspires creativity and encourages students to bring unique and thoughtful ideas to their work!
My students LOVE Angry Birds. And the way they fly around really lends itself to an Olympics style project that incorporates simple machines, the scientific method, 3D shapes, problem solving, measurement, graphing, critical thinking, evaluation and reflection!
All that packed into one REALLY FUN unit! I’ve done this with my class for two years and we have so much fun. It’s a fantastic opportunity to just teach teach teach!! You want teachable moments: This is the assignment for you!
Chock-a-block full of strands and objectives from Math, Science and Language Arts, this unit covers more outcomes than any worksheet ever could!
Students work together to create an Olympic event, make athletes to participate in the events, test the shapes and then reflect on the experience by evaluating the data and using it to think critically about the results.
I’ve made this file editable in PowerPoint so that you can adapt it to suit your needs.
Each page is explained clearly and in short sentences and includes additional teaching ideas and opportunities (you can see this in the preview). Teacher pages have black backgrounds. Student pages have pink stripes.
You don’t have to use the 3D solids I include in this packet. You can use any solids you like. I’ve included:
- Rectangular prism
- Pentagonal pyramid
- Hexagonal prism
Packet includes planning pages, 3D nets to print and colour, math journal printables and teacher pages that explain each printable.
