Create a Magnetic Maze in this amazing Valentine's Day READ ALOUD STEM Challenge for The Invisible String by Patrice Karst!

In this STEM Lesson, students design a Maze to connect 2 people using an invisible force, magnetism. They learn about how magnets work and use them to help their heart connect through the maze like an invisible string!

The Engineering Design Process:

Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't. They follow the six step Engineering Design Process: Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Experiment, Improve.

Literacy Connection:

This Activity is the perfect companion to The Invisible String by Patrice Karst. Invisible forces are all around us connecting each of us to each other. One way to help visualize that idea is through science using the invisible force of magnetism.

Writing Extension:

After students complete the STEM Challenge, students write a letter to someone who is special to them. This can be used as an amazing Valentine's Day Gift.

Aligns with NGSS and Common Core.

  • Teacher and Student Instructions (With Photo)
