PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Testing is coming up. Lessons are overwhelming and students need to do something different. Get your class thinking deeply and problem solving by using a STEM activity.

This activity is an interactive activity. Students will need access to scissors, masking tape, a quarter, long pieces of cardboard, sandpaper, felt, aluminum foil, wax paper, and paper towels. All you have to do is print the instruction page and reading comprehension page.You do have to do some cutting, but it isn't much. Students will team up to determine how to decelerate an object on an inclined plane. How will they do it? The possibilities are up to their STEM minds. Bring some fun to learning with discussion, cooperation, and fun exploration of how friction was discovered and how to turn basic classroom items into hands-on, deeper learning!
