Product Description
STEM Challenge: This is a tower building event using two very simple materials! Kids will love this and so will you! If you are looking for an easy STEM challenge to get started with STEM this is perfect!

This tower challenge is one we completed purely for fun. It’s a fantastic challenge to use as a reward for your class, a sub day, a fun Friday afternoon, STEM night at your school, Grandparent’s Day, a holiday celebration using cups decorated for the holiday, and so much more.

In this challenge students will have only two materials and the task of building the tallest tower possible. What makes this a little bit challenging are the constraints of the task. This involves what can and cannot touch on the tower. With very little instruction kids will get right to work trying to determine a way to follow the task rules and create the tallest structure. In addition, this was tested with three grade levels and 3 sets of constraints. Constraints cards for all three versions are included so that you can choose which will work best for you! Or, try all three methods!

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Craft sticks and cups! That’s all!

This package will give you a list of materials, preparation ideas, and then step-by-step procedures to make this a successful event. This is a shortened version of STEM Challenges you can find at Teachers are Terrific with only 3 pages of teacher directions and 2 pages of photos. Look for longer and more detailed instructions with the large selection of challenges right here in my store!

The package specifically includes: Teacher background, materials and preparation, 3 pages of teacher directions, Constraints cards for 3 levels of difficulty, one student lab sheet and a sample answer sheet, 2 pages of photos, and the Terms of Use page.

This challenge will need 1class session (1 hour) to complete.

Enjoy this freebie and please contact me if you need anything!
