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 picture books.
This STEM Challenge Pack is based on the book, "If I Built a Car", by Chris Van Dusen. There are five challenges included in this pack:
Air-Powered Car Design Challenge
Safe Car Design Challenge
Floating Car Design Challenge
Underwater Car Challenge
Ultimate Fantasy Car Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will bring the book to life in your classroom! You will need a copy of the book on hand in order to do some of the challenges!
Happy reading (and engineering)!
