STEM Challenges for Winter
We just can’t let it go…. specifically we can’t let go of STEM lessons and engineering activities. To celebrate ice, snow, cold, and everything frozen, we have two engineering lessons and two recipes in our fun packet.
Students can try the challenge of making an ice arch or a palace that looks frozen. For some more cold experiences, they can make frozen slime or pretend snow. Included in the packet are students guides, teacher notes, rubrics, and engineering design posters.
Materials you will need include:
ice cube trays, ice, plaster of paris, glue, sugar cubes, blue glitter glue, liquid starch, cornstarch and shaving cream. Additionally all projects need trays for a work area. Tubs and bowls are necessary for the recipes (Please note – the ice arch is very challenging)
Need some more STEM ideas? How about a fun snowball launcher to review simple machines as well as force and motion. If the kids measure their launch and collect data, you will have some math review too!
