Product Description
How tall can you stack 100 cups? Can you calculate the mean, median, mode, and range with your data?

▶️ Please note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles!

This ONE-DAY STEM Challenge is a GREAT introduction activity for finding mean, median, mode, and range.

The activity package has 4 tasks and will have your students stacking and building with cups! As towers are built students will stop and count, calculate averages, determine the median, mode, and range and have a lot of fun!

The package has complete and detailed directions for each task. The detailed teacher directions include a materials list and explanation of preparations needed. Also, to use this activity into a second or third day a list of modifications and extensions is provided. Each task is presented on its own page with hints and suggestions to guide you. Photos are provided of the activity being completed. For the student work, a two-page lab sheet set with sample answers is provided. Update! The challenge also now includes a scoring rubric and an editable forms file.

✂️ In addition to this package the supplies you will need include: foam, paper, or plastic cups in a size of your choice –each group needs 50, Meter sticks, Calculators, and a Timer.

Ideas for Cups:
► Ask parents to donate cups!
► Ask a local soft drink bottling company for donations. Or a local vending company.
► Your PTA or PTO will help!
► Shop at Dollar Stores.
► For enough cups for your class it will be between $5-$10. But, the cups are reusable for future projects! Win-win!

The package specifically contains: Cover, Materials and Preparation page,5 pages of Step- by- step procedures, Extensions page, 2-page Lab sheet set with sample answers, 3 pages of Photos, a scoring rubric, editable forms, and a Terms of Use page.
