What teacher doesn't love tall tales?
As a STEM coordinator, I am always looking for creative ways for teachers to integrate STEM engineering and design challenges into their classroom activities. I decided to work on creating STEM Engineering Challenge Packs for some well known (and loved) tall tales.
This STEM Challenge Pack is based on these tall tales:
- Johnny Appleseed
- Pecos Bill
- John Henry
- Paul Bunyan
- Sluefoot Sue
The engineering challenges in this STEM five pack are:
John Chapman Apple Raft Challenge
Pecos Bill Plastic Bag Lasso Challenge
John Henry’s Tube Train Challenge
The Big Blue Ox’s Wooden Pen Challenge
Sluefoot Sue Log Cabin Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will bring these tall tales to life in your classroom!
