Product Description
This is one of the most unique STEM Challenges ever! The premise is simple: it’s a group tower build and I mean the entire class. In this challenge, there are six teams. Each team begins with a bin of materials and a set of task cards. Every team completes task 1 with a 4-5 minute time limit. Then they rotate! That’s right, they all move to the next table. Then every team completes task 2 on the structure that was started by a different team. After 4-5 minutes, they rotate again. Every team completes task 3 on the structure that has now had two different teams working on it. This continues through 6 rotations.

Note: This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!
Quick Challenge Bundle

Detailed instructions are not included, although you will find that in STEM Challenges and STEM Activities from Teachers are Terrific! Rather, this exploration is just that- an exploration time with limited supplies and spectacular results! Your students will love the freedom of a quick challenge as they get right to work and learn as they go!

The package specifically contains: Cover sheet, Teacher Background, 4 pages of Teacher Directions, Constraints page, Group Task cards for rotations, 3 pages of Photos, a scoring rubric, pages for an alternative use of the challenge (without rotations), and a Terms of Use page. And just for you – all forms are provided in an editable format!

Simple teacher procedures are included. GO over the constraints and task cards, explain the rotation procedure, and then stand back and watch this challenge unfold. We ran into all kinds of interesting dilemmas! What if the first team uses too much of the materials? What if a table runs out of tape due to previous teams using too much? What if a team cannot get their task completed well? What will teams change as they arrive at a structure that is falling down?

★ Supplies needed in addition to this package include cardboard pieces, craft sticks, straws, string or yarn, and masking tape.
