Great for use in a STEM or gifted classroom.
For each activity, students will build or create a structure using everyday household or classroom items. These activities are designed to encourage critical thinking and scientific reasoning skills, as well as, problem solving and teamwork.
Each activity can be completed in one class period of an hour or less.
Each of the 10 tasks include:
*project overview (with short paragraph connecting the task to the fairy tale)
*student recording sheet
In addition, a grading rubric, letter to parents, and a detailed notes to teacher page is included.
