Earth Day Recycling Toy Designer STEM Activity!
Engage students on Earth Day with this Recycling Earth Day STEM Activity! Students collect and build a toy from various recyclables. They must use money to budget how much of each item to purchase before designing and building their toy. (We included an easier and more difficult money/budgeting worksheet).
A letter to parents is included to help facilitate the collection of recyclables.
This activity helps students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
Aligns with NGSS(Next Gen Science Standards) and Common Core.
