Product Description

Are you ready for a Ferris Wheel STEM challenge? Here’s the second challenge of a summer fun series to get ready for back to school time. Kids love this challenge no matter what time of year it is!

Note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles.

In this challenge, students will be using craft sticks and glue to make a spinning Ferris Wheel. The wheel has two sides and students must be diligent in making the sides match in size. In addition, the two sides must be joined together and space left in the centers to add a central turning rod or axle. Add making a frame to hold the wheel aloft and you have a truly spectacular STEM challenge.

Students will use the steps of the Engineering Design Process as you follow the pages of detailed and labeled teacher directions pages.

This challenge is from my STEM by the Month collection.

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes craft sticks, dowel sticks (3/16 to1/4 inch diameter), hot glue guns and glue, and masking tape. This challenge can be completed using only masking tape.

The package specifically includes:

  • Cover
  • Teacher background
  • Materials and preparation page
  • 8 pages of teacher directions
  • Constraints list
  • 3 pages of photographs
  • Extra Hints page
  • Student lab sheet – with sample answers
  • Extra page of Ferris wheel information
  • Scoring rubric
  • Terms of Use page.
  • All forms are provided in an editable format!

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions (1-2 hours) to complete.
