Welcome to a new “spin” on STEM! You will need to have a paper clip for each group in order to use the spinners as well as the basic supplies needed:
index cards toothpicks straws
marshmallows yarn masking tape
glue scissors tape measure
copy paper clay craft sticks
Students can spin choices for their group, or you can spin choices for the whole class. Either way, the spinners add an element of excitement and unexpectedness to the typical STEM Challenge!
This pack includes the three spinners, background information about different types of structures, lab sheets, and teacher directions.
