PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Engineering Challenges:Can you build a bridge with only a few supplies? Yes, you can!

STEM activities will astound you! Given some basic directions, supplies, and the chance to explore, students will just jump right in! Let your students 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 bridges with a variety of materials.

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

In Bridges with Index Cards students build simple platform bridges using index cards as the only supply. The final platform must hold weight. It’s a simple task with endless creative ways to fold and manipulate the paper.

In Bridges with Marshmallows some materials are added- toothpicks and marshmallows. Students build a bridge to span a gap and hold weights. The design is a little more difficult than the index card design bridge. The materials are more difficult to manipulate and students will need to connect two items to create the greatest strength. Also, recently added: This challenge now includes ten more pages of teacher directions with hints, lab sheets, constraints, and photos. And, rubrics for everything!

In Bridges with Straws the materials include paper clips, string, straws, and toothpicks. The designs will be more elaborate. Kids may be exploring creating joints and connecting the materials in unique ways. The final designs might even resemble real bridges!

You will need additional materials for use of these packages. This includes: index cards, toothpicks, marshmallows, string, straws, paper clips, scissors, bowls or paper plates, and weights (like pennies).

The packages specifically contain: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, 2-3 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures, Extensions page, 1-2 Helpful Hints pages, 2 sets of Lab sheets with sample answers, Photo pages, and Credits page. All packages are similar.
