Product Description
STEM Elementary School Classroom Project

Updated August 2018!

In this activity, students will work in groups to not only observe their paperclips float, but to figure out why. This project starts with a paper clip being dropped into a bowl and it sinks. Then students will learn two ways to get the same paper clip to float by itself!

****This STEM product is an EDITABLE PDF file!! You can make changes to the text in Adobe Acrobat Reader! This is a free program, you can download it here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/

You can customize the text in the Worksheets, Grading Rubrics, Materials Lists and Teacher Instructions to suit your class!

Save Money, buy a bundle!!! This activity is also available as part of one of my 16 packs or the "STEM for the whole year 36 Pack"! Click on the links below to check it out!!

MEGA Pack ---> "STEM for the Whole Year" Bundle: 36 Pack

STEM 16 Pack #1 for K-2

STEM 16 Pack #2 for K-2

This STEM Activity Challenge includes teacher instructions, student instructions (worksheet), grading rubrics, a demonstration video for the teacher, a materials needed sheet, and the related NGSS standards!

In the teacher demonstration video, I give you an overview of the activity challenge, talk about the materials involved and where to get them, demonstrate how to set up the challenge for the students, and discuss the science involved. Teachers have found these videos to be very helpful by showing them step-by-step how to run the activity and giving them a better understanding of the science behind it.

This activity will challenge students to work together in groups to complete the given task. These activities are fun, engaging, and the students will learn science in the process. Group work and problem solving are at the heart of these STEM / STEAM challenges.

Each activity challenge will end with a real-world research question, video, or activity. It is usually an extension of what the students just discovered and learned. The students will be involved, excited, and looking forward to future activity challenges in your classroom.

This activity addresses the following Next Generation Science Standards - NGSS
K-2-ETS1-1
K-2-ETS1-3
K-PS2-1
