So, how do you use this resource?

In our elementary classroom, I printed the cards on card stock and then laminated. I punched a hole in the cards and put them on a binder ring so kids can flip through and choose the card they would like to try with a tub of building blocks we have in the classroom. In summer school, I placed one task card on a pencil box using tape and then put all materials needed inside that pencil case for students to use easily and independently. I have these cards to use and reuse over and over again. I can also print more to send home with students as a vacation activity, summer break activity, or for home learning experiences.

What materials should I have on hand?

Materials required: building bricks, rubber bands, marbles, empty glue bottles, water, containers, pennies, marshmallows, matchbox cards, a fan.

What's included?

Included are three mini journals for planning, reflecting, and challenges. There are lined pages, pages with lines and space to draw a picture, and pages with lines/a box for drawing a picture/directions. Simply choose the cover you like, choose the pages you'd like inside, and print double-sided, flip on the short side. Just be sure to use an even number of pages.

Examples of Challenges Included:

Some challenges include: building different 2D and 3D shapes, saving your friends from a deserted island by building a boat, designing a race track for a matchbox car, helping the mail carrier deliver his mail when his truck broke down, building a stronger fence to keep a wolf out of the pig pen, and designing different scenes to represent different seasons. There is something for everyone!
