Get ready to engineer the body!
Most elementary teachers are more comfortable and knowledgeable about themes, so I have decided to create STEM challenge packs based on specific themes, like the human body!
This engineering challenge activity pack is one of many that I have created to use in my classroom! I sometimes place these challenges, one per table, and the students rotate around the room in order to complete them. There are no right or wrong answers, many different solutions will work! You could also rotate these challenges through a science center. I plan to complete these as a whole class activity, one per week during our Human Body unit. I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub!
These activities are great to use any time of the school year. You can use all of them or just pick and choose! The materials required for these challenges are easy to find and inexpensive! There are five challenges included in this pack:
Toilet Paper Tube Skeleton Challenge
Articulated Hand Challenge
Working Lung Challenge
Digestive System Model Challenge
Life-Size Body System Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their body engineering expertise! These challenges have quite a WOW factor!
