Towers Bundle Set 2
STEM Challenges 6-Pack Bundle featuring Towers

This STEM challenge features the task of using given supplies to design and build a tower. Specific criteria for the tower includes supporting an object a specific height off the table and using ALL the supplies. The supplies needed are very simple and easy to gather. Stand back and watch them construct! Students record their thinking on lab sheets or a folding graphic organizer- both of which can be used with your Science Interactive Notebooks.

The package specifically contains: Cover sheet, Teacher Background, 1 page Materials and Prep list, 5 pages of Teacher directions with helpful hints, Set of Criteria cards for students (with and without background color), a full page display of the task constraints, Lab Sheet, Folding Graphic Organizer page with a photo page of folding instructions, 4 pages of Tower Photos with more details, a scoring rubric, and all the forms are editable.

★Supplies needed in addition to this package include straws, craft sticks, coffee stir sticks, tennis balls, masking tape, string, and a container for each group’s supplies. Of course, substitutions can be made for any of these!

This tower challenge works perfectly with two more tower challenges:
Satellite Dish Towers
Water Towers

Or you can save money with tower bundles!
