These 7 STEM/STEAM plant and flower activities and challenges are a perfect way to integrate more STEAM strategies into a plant and flower unit. These activities can be used throughout a unit as each topic is covered (parts of a plant, life cycle, pollination, etc.) or at the end of the unit as culminating activities. All the materials needed are inexpensive and easy to find and probably already in your classroom (cotton balls, pipe cleaner, construction paper, paper cups, etc.)
Each activity includes a student direction page with all materials listed, a sign to label the centers, reflection/follow-up pages for students to complete, and pictures of completed examples.

-Build a Seed Transporter Challenge-
Students design and build a device to transport seeds to new locations
