Get ready to engineer some Halloween!
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 Halloween!
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 fall! I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub!
These activities are great to use around Halloween or even during the month of October. 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:
Ghost Rockets Challenge
Pumpkin Towers Challenge
Candy Corn Catapults Challenge
Haunted House Challenge
Floating Peeps Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their engineering skills! These challenges have quite a WOW factor and Halloween is a topic that gets all kids excited! Some challenges will easily work even if students do not celebrate Halloween!
