Product Description
STEM Elementary Classroom Engineering Project {Kindergarten, first grade and second grade}

In this S.T.E.M. lab, students will work in groups to create a bridge from popsicle sticks (craft sticks) that will hold as much weight as possible. The student’s favorite part is when their very own bridge gets to be tested to see how much it can hold.

You can customize the text in the Worksheets, Grading Rubrics, Materials Lists and Teacher Instructions to suit your class!

****These STEM lesson plans are in an EDITABLE PDF file!! You can make changes to the text in Adobe Acrobat Reader! This is a free program, you can download it here: https://get.adobe.com/reader/

Building Bundle: 4 Pack

This STEM Activity Challenge includes teacher instructions, student instructions (worksheet), grading rubrics, a demonstration video for the teacher, a materials needed sheet, and the related NGSS standards!

In the teacher demonstration video, I give you an overview of the activity challenge, talk about the materials involved and where to get them, demonstrate how to set up the challenge for the students, and discuss the science involved. Teachers have found these videos to be very helpful by showing them step-by-step how to run the activity and giving them a better understanding of the science behind it.

This activity will challenge students to work together in groups to complete the given task. These activities are fun, engaging, and the students will learn science in the process. Group work and problem solving are at the heart of these challenges.

Each activity challenge will end with a real-world research question, video, or activity. It is usually an extension of what the students just discovered and learned. The students will be involved, excited, and looking forward to future activity challenges in your classroom.
