My Pet Rock STEM Challenge will take you back to your childhood! Playing with rocks turning them into your own personal treasures.
In our STEM Unit, “My Pet Rock” students will be collecting materials and then exploring Marketing and Packaging Engineering. In this design challenge, students explore the properties of rocks. They will then be able to take the information they have collected and create an informational book on their “pet” rock. This design challenge can be expanded to include “accessories” for your pet rock and other design ideas. The goal is for students to have a better understanding of rocks and their identifiable properties.
This is an easy jump start challenge for students to gain a deeper understanding of rocks and minerals. Students will be to have hands on learning and experimentation.
