    • Bundle Description
    • Standards

    STEM Challenges can help students understand volume! These three STEM challenges will have your students comparing containers, using scoops to estimate, and designing a container for a specified amount of materials.

    Please note: This package contains three challenges. Each may be purchased separately. Just click on the titles.

    What are the challenges?

    In Volume with Popcorn, students design a container for a certain amount of popcorn. This lesson features the picture book “The Popcorn Book” by Tomie dePaola.

    In Volume with Scoops, students have one large container and a scoop. They add scoops of different materials to the larger container and determine how many scoops of each material they will need. Their perception of how many scoops it will take and then the discovery of what actually happens will amaze them!

    In Volume with Containers, students have an array of containers and they must place them in order from least volume to greatest volume. They repeat the activity three times- each time adding an additional element to help measure.

    What is your prep?

    You will need additional materials for use of these challenges. This includes popped popcorn, storage bags, 8½ x 11 paper, scissors, tape, staplers and a copy of The Popcorn Book by Tomie dePaola (optional); cups to use as containers and scoops, seven different materials to test (Examples: rice, beans, sand, gravel, beads, birdseed, unpopped popcorn), and dishpans or trays; seven different sizes and shapes of containers (common items like plastic cups, standing test tubes, round pans, etc.); rice (or similar item to use with measuring).

    • Cover
    • Teacher Background page
    • Materials and Preparation page
