Product Description
Ready to build another platform? Your students are going to love this! So will you as the materials are so easy! This one also has some fun experimenting with shapes before the design challenge!

Note: This challenge can be purchased as part of money-saving bundles!

STEM activities give you the opportunity to give your kids some basic supplies, a list of requirements for the task, and then watch the fun unfold. It’s a time for the best learning ever- as kids create and re-create as their work fails. It is through the failure that the best learning occurs.

This STEM activity will have your students experimenting with geometric shapes used as a building support and then designing and building a platform. There are specific rules to follow in the construction of the platform and the final structure will be tested with weight. One added feature of this challenge is having students use a budget for the supplies. They must choose wisely and use the supplies well! Team work is essential!

Materials you will need in addition to this package include: newspaper, masking tape, rulers, and scissors.

This package specifically contains: Cover Sheet, Background, Materials and Preparation page, 3 pages of Teacher’s Step-by-Step Procedures, 2 pages of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, Task Rules page, 2 versions of a lab sheet- one with sample student answers, a scoring rubric, and an editable forms file.

This platform challenge works great with two more platform events:
Straws Platforms
Craft Stick Platforms

Or you cansave money with these either of these two bundles:
Platform 3-Pack Bundle
6-Pack Bundle featuring Bridges and Platforms
