Encourage a love of STEM by using these fun poems with your marshmallow and toothpick STEM challenge! Send these take home science baggies with students and motivate families to complete the challenge.

Looking for an entire year worth of STEM challenges in a bag? Find them HERE!

I place these STEM baggies on each student desk during Meet the Teacher. I encourage my new students to go home and practice with their family before we do the challenge in class. You could also send them home at Open House or any other time of the year to increase family involvement! I hope the fun poem will motivate

your families to participate!

The poem says:

"Family fun is sure to be had

If you take home this cool STEM bag.

It's full of marshmallows - but don't eat them YET!

Using only the materials in this small set,

Your job as a family is to build a tower as high as a cloud

When you are done, step back and be proud!"

*Doesn't include marshmallows or toothpicks* :)
