Product Description
If you need to catch the attention of your elementary students this project will do it! This GREAT package contains a complete lesson plan for a STEM lab experience. The topic is Newton's Second Law of Motion---but it is presented in a very kid friendly way!

Students will be blowing marshmallows through tubes and determining distances traveled. They will use two lengths of tubes and place the marshmallows in different places and then compare the results. They will also calculate average flights, complete a data table, and more! Discussions of what happens and why are engaging and fun- almost as fun as blowing through the tubes! Students will determine an extension of the activity and can complete several. This includes a writing task!

★You will need materials for this activity: cardboard or plastic tubes in two lengths, marshmallows, plastic wrap, measuring tools, calculators, and space to work! A great substitute for the marshmallows are pom-poms! They are easier to blow through the tube!

This will take from 2-4 class sessions!

This product specifically includes: Cover Sheet, Table of Contents, Engineering Design Process Poster set, Teacher Background sheet-includes an overview and materials list, Science Background page, 8 pages of Step by Step Procedures using the Engineering Design Process format, Vocabulary sheet, Vocabulary strips - with and without background color, Lab sheets for use with each step of the design process with samples student answers, and Photos. Bonus: All forms are editable!
