Product Description
Elementary STEAM or STEM Challenges are fun for all ages! From Kindergarten to fifth grade, grab a buddy class and jump into the Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge. This unit is designed for one lower elementary class working with one upper elementary class. It is possible for you to do this project on your own, but the worksheets are designed for some assistance from the older buddy.

Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge is an amazing experience for students to reuse cardboard materials. This activity can be done any time of the year, I chose to incorporate this activity with our school carnival when the kids are hyped up about carnival games.

This unit is designed to take approx. 4-6 sessions, if you are meeting with your buddies once a week. Each session should be 35min-1hr.

This product includes;
Teacher directions
Material Shopping list
Projectable Directions
Printable and Projectable Engineering Design Process
4 Student Assignment Pages
Write the room cards and recording sheet
Science Journal/Word wall cards
Differentiated Science Journal Prompts

Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge is also available in my Buddy Up! All Year Bundle, along with 8 additional full STEAM/STEM units. If you own the bundle then you already have Caine’s Arcade Cardboard Challenge. Want them all? You can save 20% by choosing the bundle!
