Product Description
Ready for a STEM Challenge with parachutes? Your students will love creating a safe parachute for a toy figure!

This challenge is available in a money-saving bundle!

This challenge features the task of using given supplies to create a parachute that will safely land a toy figure on the ground. Specific criteria for the task is given to students along with a box of supplies. Stand back and watch them construct! Students record their thinking on lab sheets or a folding graphic organizer- both of which can be used with your Science Interactive Notebooks. Students loved this one and were very interested in seeing how everyone solved this challenge!

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!
