Product Description

Finland STEM Boat Design/Race

This STEM lesson is designed to get students thinking about the science concept of sink or float as it applies to different materials. This easy STEM activity asks students to work cooperatively with a team to design and test a boat that can float, hold weight and is wind powered. This connects to the many boats used in Finland along their archipelago. I have designed this lesson to pair with my Finland Travel Book, which can be found in my TpT store. With social studies, science and real world connections coming together in one lesson, it is a win all around!

This download includes:

1. STEM lesson recording sheet for students to record all parts of the STEM process

-Individual work sheets

-Group work sheets

2. 2 versions of a budget planning sheet

-Can be used to have students plan a budget for the materials they will use

-Differentiated with the cost of materials

3. Pictures of my class and their own boat designs

4. Teacher Resource Page with links to YouTube videos and books that can be used as resources for this lesson

I recommend pairing this lesson with an introduction to the concept of sink or float. In the download, I share the resources I used with my own class when teaching this lesson to give you ideas of outside resources you can incorporate to help build background knowledge.

With references to Finland, I also recommend you pair this activity with either my small book on Finland or your own resources. My blog: www.travelteachlove.com has blog posts on both Helsinki and Suomenlinna that are helpful.
