Product Description
Are you looking for more extensive STEM challenges for your students? Check out this Mayflower STEM project-based learning activity! It's aligned with both language arts (ELA) standards and science / engineering standards (NGSS). I recommend this project for grades 3, 4, and 5.

Driving Question: How can we create a mini-Mayflower that floats well and carries weight?

Follow the process below to complete your project:
1. Read about the Mayflower (passage included).
2. Research about the Mayflower (asking questions / citing sources).
3. Design a small Mayflower (engineering process).
4. Test your ship (testing and discussion).
5. Make the ship better (revise).
6. Test again
