HHow do I like to incorporate holidays into my academic days? With a STEM challenge of course! Students will design and build a Leprechaun Trap!
This challenge involves science and engineering process skills. You may choose to include background on traps and allow students to do some research on trap design if you like!
For the class challenge, you’ll need paper bowls (or small boxes), craft sticks, straws, masking tape, string or yarn, and a STEM Challenge packet (Objective/Rules/Grading page, Planning Sheet, Leprechaun Trap Trials, Leprechaun Trap Challenge, Post-Challenge Reflection). There is a page of “leprechauns” that can be printed on cardstock for the teams to “trap”.
This St Patrick's Day Leprechaun Trap STEM Challenge includes:
✦Leprechaun Trap Planning page
✦Leprechaun Trap Trials/Revision page
✦Leprechaun Trap Challenge page
✦Leprechaun Trap Post-Challenge Reflection page
