PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Project for Third, fourth and Fifth grades.

In this activity students will work in groups to determine which factors (angle, length, or mass) affect the period of a pendulum. Through several different experiments, they will discover that only changes in length affect the period. Near the end of this project, the
challenge will be for each group to create a pendulum of period 1 second by using the knowledge they’ve gained through prior experiments.

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 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.
