PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

STEM Challenge: Are you ready for Valentine’s Day! Here’s a fabulous STEM challenge that uses measuring, volume, estimation, design, building, and a little bit of artistic flair!

Note: This challenge may be purchased as part of a money-saving bundle!

In this challenge students will design a candy box that will exactly hold a specific amount of candy. They will have a few pieces to use in helping plan the box. They will build and decorate the box and then test it to see if the dimensions are perfect. And, since this is a Valentine box, it must be heart shaped! Along the way they will have the chance to pre-test the box and make adjustments in its size if they feel changes are needed. After improving and finishing, each team will present its work and then test it with all of the candy. Which group will have the perfect fit? Can the teams decorate in a creative or unusual way?

You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes: Clear tape, Cardstock, Copy paper, Construction paper, Straws, String or yarn, Glue sticks, and CANDY!

The package specifically includes: cover, teacher background, materials and preparation page, 5 pages of teacher directions, a constraints list, 4 pages of photographs, 2 versions of a lab sheet, and the credits page. Student answer sheets are not included, but samples from student work are included in the teacher direction pages. The page count listed for this package includes everything.

NOTE: This challenge can be used during many times of the year! We also tested it as a Christmas Candy Gift Box. Additional pages have been added for this including: Materials and Prep for the Christmas Candy Box, Christmas Candy constraints, Christmas Candy Lab sheet, and photos.

This challenge will need 1-2 class sessions to complete. We completed it in one hour.
