Get ready to engineer some serious magnetic attraction!
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 magnets!
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 an electricity and magnet unit. I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub!
These activities are great to use during a magnet unit, or as a part of an energy or electricity unit. 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:
Magnetic Maze Challenge
Magnet Game Challenge
Defying Gravity Challenge
Magnetic Slime Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their engineering skills! These challenges have quite a WOW factor and magnets are a topic that gets all kids excited, especially since they are somewhat familiar with magnets! There are challenges for individual students and for small groups included in the pack!
