    Here you go! Two challenges to use with the books: Don't Let the Pigeon on the Bus!! and The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog.

    Don't Let the Pigeon on the Bus!! STEM Challenge: How about if we design a bus just for him? Your kids will have a blast designing a bus and learning about simple machines, like the wheel and axle.

    The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog STEM Challenge: Kids create a solar cooker and actually cook a hot dog!

    Each product begins with a short blurb about why use STEM at all. Then I review the standards they address and for which grades. Finally I review science background. I included teacher directions, the design challenge and a student planning sheet. There's even a data recording sheet!

    Have a blast!! Make sure to read the book by Mo Willems to them first!

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
    Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer. Examples of devices could include an insulated box, a solar cooker, and a Styrofoam cup. Assessment does not include calculating the total amount of thermal energy transferred.
    Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
    Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
