Product Description
STEM Christmas Around the World Activities (Christmas in Italy STEM Challenge)

This Christmas in Italy STEM Challenge is perfect for your Christmas around the World unit! It’s a fun, creative, and engaging way to get your students designing and building during this time of year.

Challenge your students to design and build a broomstick for Befana using skewers and string. Can they launch the broomstick like an arrow using a bow made of skewer and rubber bands? You can also modify the task and include any other materials you would like students to use. You can do this individually or in groups (I prefer groups of 3-4). Give students the materials mentioned (For safety purposes, please snip the pointed part of the skewers before handing them out), as well as some tape. You can show the students the images of the possible finished product I included or make the task open ended and let them come up with their own designs.

Let students present, as well as test their work. Make sure to set and discuss rules to make this a safe activity (I included some suggestions to make it easier for you). Give students a chance to make improvements. Have students share their reflections afterwards. Students can use the included vocabulary, and planning and reflection sheets to guide their learning. Please see Did You Know… and Ideas for STE(A)M Links for discussion and extension activities that you can do.

Please see PREVIEW for a better look of ALL the included pages in this resource. Colored and blackline versions of sheets are included, as well as a page with alternate English spelling (Canadian/UK/Australian).

Thanks for your interest in one my Christmas Around the World activities. Thanks for being a blessing!
