### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenges: This package contains six STEM Challenges all about using math skills. Each is listed in more detail below. I hope the opportunity to purchase this money-saving bundle will help you incorporate STEM into your busy schedule!

This bundle contains six challenges featuring specific math skills. These are available separately and as part of other bundles. The individual products include:

Exploring Volume with Popcorn This will have your students thinking about volume. Students will design and construct a container for a specific amount of popcorn. Materials needed: popped popcorn, storage bags, 8½ x 11 paper, scissors, tape, and staplers.

Exploring Volume with Scoops Students explore the meaning of volume. They will examine various materials and consider how many scoops of those materials will fill a container. Materials needed: cups to use as containers and scoops, seven different materials to test (Examples: rice, beans, sand, gravel, beads, birdseed, unpopped popcorn), and dish pans or trays.

Exploring Volume with Containers Students visualize and understand volume as they compare sizes of containers and their volume. They will examine seven different containers with volumes they cannot easily distinguish by merely looking at them. They will try to order the containers from least volume to greatest volume - using only observation. They will also devise ways to test those orders. Materials needed: seven different sizes and shapes of containers (common items like plastic cups, standing test tubes, round pans, etc.); rice (or similar item to use with measuring); scoops (a 3 ounce cup works); and dishpans or trays.

Finding the Mean, Median, Mode, and RangeThe activity has 4 tasks and will have your students stacking and building with cups! As towers are built students will stop and count, calculate averages, determine the median, mode, and range and have a lot of fun! Materials needed: Styrofoam cups- size of your choice –each group needs 50, Meter sticks, Calculators, and a Timer.

Exploring Perimeter and Area Students will be thinking about perimeter and area. After talking about measuring perimeter and area students will be given a specific perimeter to use in designing a Dog Run. Materials needed:
a copy of the book by Loreen Leedy called “Measuring Penny” (Optional); cm grid paper, construction paper, glue, markers, scissors, and chart paper.

Using Perimeter and Area Students will be using perimeter and area. After talking about measuring perimeter and area students will be given a specific perimeter to use in designing polygons. They must design a dog house floor plan- with specific size rules for the area and perimeter. Materials needed: cm grid paper, construction paper, glue, tape, markers, scissors, and chart paper.

NOTE: Each of these challenges may be purchased individually. You can also see a more detailed preview or read a longer product description by clicking on any of the links listed above.

Also, these challenges are available in bundles of three:
STEM Challenges – A Bundle of Math Based STEM Challenges
STEM Challenges- A Bundle of STEM Activities about Volume

I have bundled these two 3-challenge bundles into a slightly larger set to help with the cost! Take a look:

Individually purchased, the 6 STEM Challenges would be \$15.
The Volume Bundle and the Math Bundle purchased separately would be \$12.
I hope the even lower amount will get you started in STEM!
