Description

One of our favorite challenges is to build a boat, so I knew students would love this Quick Challenge to build a raft. This is a Quick Challenge. Detailed instructions are not included, although you will find that in STEM Challenges and STEM Activities from Teachers are Terrific! Rather, this exploration is just that- an exploration time with limited supplies and spectacular results!

Note: This quick challenge is available as part of money-saving bundles:

What is the challenge?

Students build a flat bottom raft and then test its ability to float and hold a little bit of weight. You will love the easy prep for this challenge and the problem solving that occurs when the rafts begin to sink. Get ready for cheering or groaning as the rafts are tested!

What is your prep?

Materials needed for the STEM Challenge include straws, craft sticks, and masking tape. You will also need a water bin to test the rafts.

The package specifically contains:

  • Cover sheet
  • Teacher Background
  • 3 pages of Teacher Direction,
  • Set of Criteria cards for students (in 2 versions)
  • Lab Sheet with answer samples
  • 2 pages of photos
  • Scoring rubric
  • Terms of Use
  • All forms are provided in an editable format!

Simple teacher procedures and tons of tips are included. Just talk about the criteria of the task, and let them get busy planning, designing, collaborating, and learning!

Your students will love building and testing their rafts!
