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, "Mr. Popper's Penguins", by Richard and Florence Atwater. There are six challenges included in this pack:
Insulated Ice Box Challenge
Ice Cube Slide Challenge
Cardboard Tube Toboggan Challenge
Penguin Playground Challenge
Plank and Ladders Challenge
Design a Penguin Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will bring the book to life in your classroom! They could also be used when studying penguins in science!
Happy reading (and engineering)!
*There is a materials list for these challenges in the PREVIEW file!
