The following STEM Bins® Teambuilders are designed to accompany my STEM Bins® , found at the following link:



STEM Bins® Teambuilders are a wonderful way to build your classroom community and allow students to practice and reflect on essential character skills. They are ideal for use at the beginning of the school year as you are introducing STEM Bins to your class and as needed for teambuilding throughout the year.

12 Challenges are provided for you to set up in stations, and you may choose how many stations you’d like your students to complete. Each challenge is designed to be used with your existing classroom set of STEM Bins®, along with a few other basic classroom materials. There is a tabletop tent for each station with the challenge instructions on one side and character emphasis on the other side. The character cards may be displayed in your classroom after the challenges are complete.

Students need to be placed in groups of 2-3 and given at least 15-20 minutes per station to meet the challenge.

Students each need a copy of the student booklet with cover, checklist, and challenge pages to bring with them to each station. EDITABLE PowerPoint pages are provided in a separate file for you to customize your own challenge checklists.

Each student page provides an opportunity for students to reflect on how they showed the character emphasis for the challenge. Final reflection pages are also provided.

Includes the following materials and challenges in LOWER GRADE AND UPPER GRADE VERSIONS:
