Thanksgiving STEM Challenges are a great way to keep students engaged, thinking critically, and working on hands-on problem solving at a time they usually struggle to concentrate! This is challenge is 1 of 5: Mini Mayflower in which students design a boat built for capacity and/or speed!
Note: This video was originally created for YouTube, so references to clicking on the video do not work on TpT; however, the links to everything clickable is included in the description below. Because TPT does not have the same features, I was unable to add a digital sticky note here clarifying my description of the Boat Building bundle. In the video, I say it that activity goes deeper into the scientific method, but I was thinking of a different activity. Boat Building goes deeper into data collection and analysis. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions!
