INTEGRATE STEM IN YOUR CLASSROOM THIS Winter!
A great STEM activity for a cold WINTER’s day! In this STEM activity, students are challenged to engineer a zoo enclosure for Emperor penguins at a new zoo in Nevada. They must think critically when developing their design plan and remember to incorporate the correct habitat features to keep the penguins nice and cold in the hot Nevada environment!
Students will develop critical thinking and engineering skills as they work through the challenge. They will use the engineer design process the brainstorm, plan, create, test and improve! Opportunities for reflection are incorporated into the activity. Materials Needed:
one 8 ounce plastic container without lid (must be the main part of the habitat)
Black Construction Paper
-Teacher Instructions for Habitat for a Penguin
-Student Instructions for Habitat for a Penguin
-Student Planning Pages
-Student Reflection Sheet
-Student Example pictures
