Who doesn't love Nursery Rhymes? They are perfect 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 nursery rhymes!
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:
Hickory Dickory Clock Challenge
Humpty Dumpty Wall Challenge
Miss Muffet’s Tuffet Challenge
Jack & Jill’s Bucket Challenge
Itsy Bitsy Spider Drainpipe Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their engineering skills! These challenges have quite a WOW factor and nursery rhymes are a topic that gets all kids reminiscing! There are challenges for small groups included in the pack!
