    Bundle Description

    Perfect for Back to School Time! This is an amazing collection of kid-tested STEM Challenges appropriate for 3rd grade students. It includes 20 best-selling STEM Challenges and a Bonus Project.

    Note: Each of the challenges is available individually and in other money-saving bundles.

    The challenges chosen to include in this resource include a variety of building tasks with constraints that will challenge your 3rd (or 4th and 5th) graders. The constraints, lab sheets, and rubrics are editable so you can certainly make changes to make these less difficult for younger students or more difficult for older students. Many of the challenges have specific ideas listed to make these harder.

    For each challenge, you will have a background page, a materials and prep page, 2-5 pages of detailed teacher directions, 1-4 pages of extra hints, 1-4 pages of photos, extensions pages, lab sheets with sample answers, scoring rubrics, and more. All forms (lab sheets, constraints, data tables, budgeting lists, and scoring rubrics) are editable. In addition, a few of the challenges include an alternative way to be used for holidays which included lab sheets for those differences.

    If you are adding STEM to your middle or upper elementary classroom this package is perfect for you! The challenges vary in difficulty level and length of time needed to complete. This could easily be enough to last for your entire school year!

    Just a note: My STEM resources are not just a collection of worksheets and an idea. I provide you with detailed teacher directions, tips, photos, samples, and pages of extra information. Everything you need is in the resource! The page count for this resource is 541. That does not include the covers and individual Terms of Use pages. It does include non-editable and editable versions of forms which are both included for your convenience.

    Listed below are the challenges included in this bundle: Each is linked to its individual page in my store. Visit those pages for more details.
