Product Description
STEM Challenge: Do you want to build a snowman? Here’s a great indoor solution to something kids love! Build a snowman STEM Challenge!

This Snowman Challenge may be purchased as part of a money-saving bundle!

This challenge is to build a model of a snowman using only a few supplies. One is newspaper for the snowman frame and the other is tissue to cover the snowman. Students will also decorate their snowman in typical clothing or other décor. Will students build wide and round models or tall, thin models? Can they get the snowman to stand up? Will they make great decisions about how to use the materials? This is a fabulous challenge that is a lot more difficult than you would expect. My students were quite surprised about how hard this challenge turned out to be! There is a lot creativity with this STEM challenge- in fact, we could easily call this one a STEAM task.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes:
• Newspaper
• Rolls of toilet tissue
• Masking tape
• Scissors
• White glue (optional)
• Construction paper in many colors

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 5 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list , 4 pages of photographs, 2 versions of a lab sheet, and the credits page. Student answer sheets are not included, but samples from student work are included in the teacher direction pages. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions to complete.
