PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenges! Hands-on learning at its best, inquiry driven, construction rich, and full of collaboration and now FINALLY bundles with three top selling activities! After numerous requests for a bundle of different items that have no particular theme here’s a third one: It’s Marble Mazes, Spaghetti Towers, and Volume with Popcorn! Three of my best selling STEM challenges all together!

Note: These three challenges may be purchased separately and in other money-saving bundles!

Need more details?

Marble Mazes Students will be designing a maze through which a marble can travel. They will fold and bend paper or cardboard into the maze paths and then try their invention repeatedly. Your students will love this! Materials needed in addition to this package include: boxes (like a gift box), card board, card stock, copy paper, construction paper, marbles, craft items (like styrofoam, foam, poms-poms, sponges, tissue paper), scissors, masking tape, and rulers. The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, 5 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures, Extensions page, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 2 versions of a Lab sheet, 4 pages of Photos, a page listing task constraints, two pages of extra information about mazes, and a Credits page. The page count listed with this product includes everything.

Spaghetti Towers Students use spaghetti and a few simple supplies to construct the tallest tower possible. Three pages of step-by-step instructions are included with many hints along the way. You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes spaghetti, marshmallows, tape, and string. Students also need scissors. The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, 4 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures, Extensions page, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 2 versions of a Lab sheet, 4 pages of Photos, a page listing task constraints, one page of extra information about towers, and a Credits page. The page count listed with this product includes everything.

Volume with Popcorn This one will have your students thinking about volume. Students will design and construct a container for a specific amount of popcorn. The final design will test their understanding of volume and at the same time have them collaborating, designing, and constructing. In the end, each team will present their final container! You will need materials in addition to this lesson guide! This includes: popped popcorn, storage bags, 8½ x 11 paper, scissors, tape, and staplers. You will have to supply each group with a popcorn sample of 10 pieces of popcorn and you will need almost 300 pieces counted out for the challenge. It only takes a few minutes to count the popcorn into a container! You may also need a copy of The Popcorn Book by Tomie dePaola (optional).
The lesson guide provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a great experience. A page of Helpful Hints gives ideas of specific things to think about while using this package. Two lab sheets are provided and a page of photos to guide the use of the package. A page of Extensions gives ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers. Also, some ideas are given to further use The Popcorn Book.
