What teacher doesn't love to use novels in the classroom?

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 beloved novels.

This STEM Challenge Pack is based on the book, "Hatchet", by Gary Paulsen. There are five challenges included in this pack:

Paper Floatplane Challenge
Temporary Shelter Challenge
Critter Camouflage Challenge
Bow & Arrow Challenge
Wooden Raft Challenge

These STEM engineering and design challenges will bring the book to life in your classroom!

Happy reading (and engineering)!

*There is a materials list for these challenges in the PREVIEW file!
