PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I-STEM Unit: Play Dough Puzzler

Most I-STEM projects at our school are made using tape, glue, or string. What if these materials were not available? Play dough could be used, but there are many different recipes. What recipe would make the best play dough to create a model of an insect with other reusable materials?

In this I-STEM unit, students are challenged to design and make play dough that can used to create an insect without using glue, tape, or anything else to keep it together. It was created for a rising third grade summer school group, and Virginia SOLs are listed.

This 4-day, 90-minutes per day unit includes lessons, play dough recipes, materials and physical characteristics reference cards, station tents (print on card stock), bulletin board headers, and a student design notebook. The student design notebook is a Word document so that you can edit it to meet your student's needs. You will need Microsoft Word software. An answer key for halving the recipes is included. No answer key is available for the student design notebook since this is based on the students' observations.

The thumbnails are from the unit. Download the Preview to see the Student Notebook.
