STEM Brown Bag Art Challenge: STEM, STEAM, 21st century, creative thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration all in one!

Students will work together in small groups to solve an art challenge. Each group will pull a challenge from a brown bag and work together as a team to do what the challenge says.

Included is the lesson plan for this lesson, complete with the four challenges (in color and b/w), labels for your bags, blank sheets to create your own challenges, pictures, steps, and all instructions needed.

Regular office supplies are the only thing you need:

  • Brown lunch bags
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper (variety of colors)
  • Markers
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Rulers
  • Crayons
  • Markers
  • Pencils
  • Copy paper

This lesson is so simple and yet so effective—it's a great 21st-century lesson and will be something your students always remember!
