Product Description

CHECK OUT THIS BLOG POST TO LEARN MORE!

Your students will LOVE this back to school STEAM or STEM Challenge that goes with the book School's First Day of School! It includes step-by-step instructions, recording sheets that follow the Engineering Design Process (Editable success criteria!) and a sample STEAM or STEM lesson plan for use during the first few weeks of school! For this STEAM or STEM Challenge, I recommend students work in groups of 2-4.

- Back to School Craftivity

- STEAM/STEM Challenge

Each group will need a variation on the following supplies:

Cardboard (hope you saved your Amazon boxes!) 2-3 5x5inch pieces

Craft Sticks (Popsicle Sticks) about 33 for 3 walls.

1 yd. of tape (any kind, I use masking tape in my classroom)

A paper plate for the base.

Scissors

Glue (OPTIONAL, but preferably liquid)

Foil (OPTIONAL)

Three pieces of “garbage” to test each school with, I plan to use three milk cartons from my school’s cafeteria and fill them with rocks, weights, and sand! (Your students will never know until they test! I can’t wait to see their faces!)

Painting Supplies (I plan to have my students paint their schools before we test them on the second day of school, makes it go from STEM to STEAM)

Any other supplies you have that could work to build a school!!

Your students’ objective is to build a school using the supplies listed above (or your choice of supplies!!) while cooperating with their group members to plan, design, test, and improve a school building design. I have included recording sheets that have success criteria already written and an editable version, so you can create your own criteria! A STEAM Rubric and step-by-step directions are also included! I would not share the step-by-step guide with students, as they should be thinking critically when creating their own designs! One hint you could give them is that their roof needs to be just as sturdy as their walls.
