Who doesn't love Superheroes?
Most elementary teachers are more comfortable and knowledgeable about themes, so I have decided to create STEM challenge packs based on specific themes, like Superheroes!
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 April and May after testing. 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! Most materials are pretty easy to find and are low in cost! There are five challenges included in this pack:
Tallest Skyscraper Challenge
Farthest Flying Plane Challenge
Strongest Spider Web Challenge
Longest Bridge Challenge
Fastest Balloon Rocket Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students save the world, just like superheroes!
