EARLY FINISHES - STEM SHAPES can be used as a choice board for early finishers. These are great to extend students and get them thinking differently. STEM SHAPES require the use of a lot of problem solving skills
STUDENT LED CHOICES - STEM SHAPES can be used to lead your maker space or junk modelling ideas. Students can choose which tasks to complete.
WHOLE CLASS - You can use STEM SHAPES with the whole class, the entire class can be given one challenge from the card per week/session.
