Your students will love the freedom of a quick challenge as they get right to work and learn as they go!

What is your prep?

Supplies needed in addition to this package include Cardboard tubes, index cards, metal washers, pipe cleaners, aluminum foil, straws, rubber bands, masking tape, and a container for each group’s supplies. Of course, substitutions can be made for any of these!

The package specifically contains:

  • Cover sheet
  • Teacher Background
  • 2 pages of teacher directions
  • Set of Criteria cards for students (with and without background color)
  • Lab Sheet
  • Folding Graphic Organizer page
  • 3 Photo pages
  • Scoring rubric
  • Terms of Use page

Even better! There is also a file with forms in an editable format! Specific Teacher Procedures are not included. Just talk about the Criteria of the task, give students their supply boxes, and let them get busy planning, designing, collaborating, and learning! It’s easy and quick!

I know you are going to love this Quick Challenge! Enjoy!
