    Description

    These three STEM challenges will have your students building three different items with a variety of materials. These three student-favorites are also best sellers! Building boats, building cars, and building mazes are highly engaging and you will see such great problem-solving!

    The three challenges may also be purchased in larger money-saving bundles!

    What are the challenges?

    In Building Cars students will have specific supplies and must design a car that rolls. They must work together to use the supplies in a creative way. Their thinking will truly be tested as they encounter problems to solve.

    In Building Boats your students will use simple supplies you probably already have on hand and they will choose which materials they wish to use. To make this even more challenging students have a materials spending budget and must stay within it while building their boat. This package has been updated with editable lab sheets, an editable constraints page, and scoring rubrics!

    In Building a Marble Maze students will design a maze through which a marble can travel. They will fold and bend paper or cardboard into the maze paths and then try their invention repeatedly. Your students will love this one!

    What is your prep? You will need these materials or appropriate substitutes:

    For Cars, you will need cardboard, Styrofoam, cardstock, empty water bottles, plastic and Styrofoam cups, popsicle sticks, dowel sticks, pipe cleaners, straws, washers, bottle caps, boxes, aluminum foil, rubber bands, twist ties, tape, string, and glue. Don't let this list frighten you! I literally just went through cabinets and grabbed things- you can choose many items to substitute for anything I have listed!

    For Boats, you will need straws, masking, tape, craft foam, aluminum foil, waxed paper, plastic wrap, cups, water containers, weight (like pennies), and lots of paper towels!

    For Mazes, you will need boxes (like a gift box), cardboard, cardstock, copy paper, index cards, construction paper, marbles, craft items (like Styrofoam, foam, poms-poms, sponges, tissue paper), scissors, masking tape, and rulers.

    What is included?

    For each of the three challenges you will receive: a lesson guide that provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a great experience; a page of Helpful Hints that gives ideas of specific things to think about while using this package; lab sheets; sample answer sheets from students; photos to help in your use of the challenges; and a page of Extensions that will give you ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers.

    This set is a combination of three STEM challenges. If you prefer the packages may be purchased separately.

    This bundle may also be purchased as part of a money-saving 6-Pack!
