These Take-Home STEM Task cards with Instructional Videos are great for homeschooling and distance learning! I'm offering this resource FREE for a limited time.
****Setup for these activities is EXTREMELY easy!****
In light of the "COVID-19" Coronavirus outbreak, I've put together this resource for teachers to send home as a fun way to continue STEM learning even when school is out of session due to government mandates. It works well to electronically send the pdf file to parents but it can also be printed and given out as a take-home packet.
Please Note: I've included this as a bonus activity in my "STEM Task Cards for the Year" bundle. The rest of the task card sets in this bundle do , just fun challenges :-)
This task card set is adapted (and simplified) from my STEM Stations Activities Resource. The videos reference a “STEM BOX”, which is a box of supplies that a teacher would pre-stock and have ready for kids to work on in a student-led group.
Each task card has a QR code (and a link) that goes to a video that lays out a STEM challenge and then explains the science behind the activity. There is also an EDITABLE worksheet and STEM process poster! These STEM task cards are perfect for emailing to parents so they can EASILY do STEM activities at home with their kiddos! They simply choose a challenge, watch the fun and educational video, sketch out their design, build, and answer the response questions on their worksheets. In addition, students can reference the included STEM process poster as they design and build. They could even take pictures of their creations and send them to you electronically!
The materials needed for these activities:
