This is an engaging STEM or STEAM challenge that is tied to the story Jack and the Beanstalk. In this challenge, students will have to design and construct a beanstalk that could help Jack return to the land of the Giants. This unit incorporates reading, writing, creative problem solving and engineering skills in a very authentic way. Students apply these skills as they walk through the Engineering Design Process and get a taste of what this process may look like in the real world.
As a BONUS I have included an extension menu with 3 extension activities that will challenge and engage students that finish the challenge earlier than others. And the best part, this is all ready to go! Enjoy!
