Product Description
STEM Engineering Challenges for Autumn or Halloween!
This packet is a discounted combo packet that includes Bobbing for Apples with STEM and STEM the Web: Engineer like a Spider. Although both of these lesson are available individually as well in other larger bundles, we have created a discounted combination package with just these two popular STEM activities.

Bobbing for Apples with STEM
Let’s add a little engineering to the harvest party tradition of bobbing for apples. We can use our STEM skills to engineer devices that keep our faces out of the water. With a tub of water, ten small apples and a bag of easy to find materials for each group, we can have a creative activity that encourages “brain push ups”.

This lesson was updated on 9-26-2017 and the following items are now included :

Bobbing for Apples Informative Text
Comprehension Questions
Vocabulary
Bobbing for Apples with STEM Engineering Activity (7 pages)
Reflection
Inquiry Questions
Engineering Process Poster
Rubric
Job cards
NGSS Chart
Teacher notes (3 pages)
Credits, Terms of Use, Resources (4 pages)


"One of the best design challenges I have purchased. Definitely worth the money. Kids worked in partners. They had a chance to test their designs in the sink with an apple and then redesign if necessary. We did the final test in a large tub of water. Kids are still talking about this challenge two months later. Thank you!” Jasmine



STEM a Web: Engineer like a Spider

Can your students engineer like a spider? With yarn, a coat hanger and tape, challenge your class to create a weight-bearing web. Packet includes student pages, teacher notes, group roles, inquiry questions, a rubric and the engineering design process poster.

“My students just loved this! Deceptively challenging!” MizK
