Product Description
Integrating STEM across the curriculum is really important. With
this project, students focus on learning about the different types
of penguins by researching them, then write facts about the type
of penguin they are assigned (I have students work in pairs).
Students then write an informational report about the penguin.

Writing Project: Can you write an informational report containing facts about a specific penguin species?

The STEM challenge component involves having students create a
3D model of the penguin species they wrote about. The student
reports (I have both students in the pair write their own report)
and the 3D model (they make one together) look great when
displayed together!

STEM Challenge: Can you create an accurate 3D model of a specific type of penguin using the measurements you are given?


All you need for the STEM challenge is some white bulletin board paper, a stapler, tape measure, scissors and crayons!

Time to engineer some writing with your STEM challenge!
