Get ready to do some more Fairy Tale engineering! This is my second set of engineering challenges inspired by fairy tales!
Most elementary teachers are more comfortable and knowledgeable with fairy tales, so I have decided to create STEM challenge packs based on them!
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 school year! I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub!
These activities are great to use during a fairy tale study. 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:
Goldilocks’ Just Right Challenge
Cinderella’s Gravity Carriage Challenge
Princess & the Pea’s Sponge Stack Challenge
Little Red’s Basket Challenge
Snow Queen’s Tower Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their engineering skills! These challenges are a great way to extend fairy tales into an engaging and collaborative experience for students!
