Description

STEM Elementary Classroom Project for Middle School—6th, 7th and 8th grades.

In this activity, students will work in groups to build and shoot mini-marshmallows. Not only will students have a lot of fun building this, but they will also need to modify and adjust their shooting form in order to hit a bullseye on the wall.

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

STEM 16 Pack #1 for 6-8

STEM 16 Pack #2 for 6-8

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.
