Product Description
STEM Challenge Money-Saving Bundle: Oh my goodness- kids love to design things and use balloons to propel them! Here are three fabulous challenges that all use balloons!

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

Hands-on, project-based learning is the heart of STEM in the elementary classroom. Students work together to answer questions like “How can we cut a hole the right size to fit this supply?” or “How can we attach balloons to this so we can still blow them up?” or “How can we re-design this because it just is not working like we thought it would?” Students collaborate, think critically and creatively, and learn to communicate with one another.

This multi-pack contains three challenges all using balloons as a method to propel the design feature.

In Balloon Cars students create a car that rolls using some very basic supplies. In addition they must make the car propel forward with the power of a blown up balloon. Will it roll? Will it travel on a straight path? How many balloons should they use? Your students will amaze you with their designs and ways to make this car work.

In Balloon Rockets students experiment with ways to make a balloon travel along a vertical path successfully. They will be challenged to use supplies in the most efficient way and launch the balloon rocket as high as possible.

In Balloon Carousels students use some very simple supplies to create a carousel that turns. The carousel is powered with a balloon or balloons and must stay aloft on its central turning pole. Will it turn? How fast can it turn? How will you attach it to the central pole? The problem-solving and immediate modifications to designs are really fun to watch!

Each challenge includes detailed step-by-step teacher directions with hints and tips scattered throughout. Each includes lab sheet sets, answer samples, photos, and extra tips. And more! Each challenge includes editable lab sheets and editable constraints posters. Scoring rubrics are also included for each challenge!

You will need additional supplies for each challenge>
For Balloon Cars you will need: paper plates, wooden skewers, straws, balloons, tape, scissors, and small pieces of cardboard.
For Balloon Rockets you will need: balloons, index cards, string, masking tape, and straws.
For Balloon Carousels you will need: foam plates, balloons, heavy paper or cardboard, broomsticks or PVC pipe, pipe cleaners, rubber bands, string, cardboard tubes, masking tape, and optional craft items for decorating the final carousel.

This set is a combination of three STEM challenges. If you prefer the packages may be purchased separately.
