Description

This is a wonderful stem project filled with stem activities to turn your students into kid engineers! In this STEM winter activity students will follow a fictional character and engineer their way through the stem projects. This resource is aligned with common core math standards along with NGSS.

In this resource you will find:

• Lesson Standards
• Short story prompts before every stem project
• An engineering + geometry challenge as students construct a home with given constraints
• A lesson on matter and its interactions as they experiment with various insulation materials.
• A lesson on circuity as they create squishy circuits
• A STEAM craft idea, including a snowflake template
• Student reflection pages

I hope you enjoy this and happy teaching!

NGSS4-PS3-2
Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. Assessment does not include quantitative measurements of energy.
NGSS1-PS4-4
Use tools and materials to design and build a device that uses light or sound to solve the problem of communicating over a distance. Examples of devices could include a light source to send signals, paper cup and string "telephones," and a pattern of drum beats. Assessment does not include technological details for how communication devices work.
NGSS2-PS1-4
Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot. Examples of reversible changes could include materials such as water and butter at different temperatures. Examples of irreversible changes could include cooking an egg, freezing a plant leaf, and heating paper.
NGSS3-ESS3-1
Make a claim about the merit of a design solution that reduces the impacts of a weather-related hazard. Examples of design solutions to weather-related hazards could include barriers to prevent flooding, wind resistant roofs, and lighting rods.
NGSSK-2-ETS1-1
Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
