No time? No problem!

When speaking with classroom teachers about STEM, I hear the same problem again and again: there’s just not enough time in the day. Teachers recognize the value of bringing STEM activities into their classrooms, but struggle with how to fit them in.

If this sounds all too familiar, then this resource was created with your needs in mind. Here’s what you can expect:

•minimal prep

•readily accessible materials

•15-20 minutes, start to finish

•critical thinking and problem solving

•collaboration

•fun!

Each task can stand alone, but I have included printables (for recording and/or reflecting) on those rare occasions when you have a few extra minutes.

Please check out the other STEM challenges in the "Squeezing in STEM" series. Maybe you do have the time after all! Each activity is available individually, or can be purchased at a 50% discount in the Squeezing in STEM bundle!
