These 10 minute STEM challenges are great options for substitute teachers, time fillers, STEM stations, or for the end of the school year! There are 11 challenges with (optional) recording sheets available in this product.
The resources needed for each project are really open-ended so that it doesn't require a trip to the store. In theory, you could grab a challenge and do it in the next 30 minutes. There are only two challenges that require a specific supply. One that includes pom pom balls (could use cotton balls) and one that involves pennies.
Resources that they can work with: pennies, eye droppers, pom poms, cups, cubes, blocks, Legos, dominoes, spoons, toilet paper tubes, cardboard, popsicle sticks, pop cans, paper, tinfoil, pipe cleaners, newspaper, tape, etc.
