PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenge: It's time to build a tower! This is a set of three different towers!

STEM activities are so much fun! Given some basic directions, supplies, and the chance to explore, students will just jump right in! They will manipulate supplies, learn as they go, re-do, re-cut, re-build, and re-think! Students will be thinking critically without being aware of it, talking and collaborating, and problem solving. Best of all, it’s total engagement! Kids love STEM tasks!

These three STEM challenges will have your students building towers with a variety of materials.

*** Please note: This package contains three lessons. Each may be purchased separately.

In Build a Tower with Spaghetti students will have spaghetti, tape, string, and one large marshmallow. The challenge is to build the highest tower possible using only those supplies. They must use the materials wisely! Also, includes pages for using this at Christmas time as a Bell Tower. This challenge also includes a version that uses a blueprint and scoring rubrics have been added.

In Build a Tower with Toothpicks students have two supplies- toothpicks and modeling clay. Again, they build the highest possible tower, using only the given supplies and a lot of creativity. It’s a super task! This challenge now includes a version that uses marshmallows and blueprints. This includes new teacher directions, hints, photos, lab sheets, and scoring rubrics.

In Build a Tower with Index Cards students have a supply of index cards and some masking tape! That’s it! How high can you build a tower with only those supplies? The thinking and variety of solutions to this task will amaze you! Also, includes pages for using at Christmas time as a Santa Tower!

You will need additional materials for use of these packages. This includes: spaghetti, masking tape, string, large marshmallows, toothpicks, modeling clay (Play-doh), index cards, scissors, and rulers.

For each package you will receive: a lesson guide that provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a great experience; a page of Helpful Hints that gives ideas of specific things to think about while using this package; two versions of lab sheets; sample students answers for lab sheets; 1-2 pages of photos to help in your use of the challenges; and a page of Extensions that will give you ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers.

Each package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, 2 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures, Extensions page, Helpful Hints page, 2 Lab sheets, sample students answers, Photo page or pages, and Credits pages.
