Get ready to use the force to do some engineering!
Most elementary teachers are more comfortable and knowledgeable about themes, so I have decided to create STEM challenge packs based on specific themes, like Star Wars!
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 our Space unit. 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! The materials required for these challenges are easy to find and inexpensive! There are five challenges included in this pack:
Working Light Saber Challenge
Droid Factory Challenge
Marshmallow Blaster Challenge
Jedi Magnet Maze Challenge
Clone Troopers Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their use of the force as well as their engineering expertise! These challenges have quite a WOW factor!
