Who doesn't love Castles and Knights? It is a perfect topic for kids of all ages!
Most elementary teachers are more comfortable and knowledgeable with theme topics, so I have decided to create STEM challenge packs based on specific ones, like castles and knights
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-two per week during the spring. I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub!
These activities are great to use anytime of the 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:
Tallest Tower Challenge
Castle Wall Challenge
Strongest Dungeon Challenge
Working Drawbridge Challenge
Cardboard Castle Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their engineering skills! These challenges have quite a WOW factor and castles are a topic that gets all kids excited and interested! There are challenges for small groups included in the pack!
