It's no wonder that everyone loves STEM! STEM activities are fun, hands-on, engaging, and collaborative. Students enjoy the interactive nature of these activities, and teachers appreciate the creative and critical thinking they require.
Each lesson in the Backpack Jack series begins by introducing (or becoming reacquainted with) Jack, a fun-loving outdoor adventurer. Students will read Jack's challenge, and work collaboratively with their classmates to come up with a solution. To add to the challenge, the only materials students may use are the odds and ends in Jack's backpack! (All materials are readily available and free or very inexpensive.)
This lesson contains:
--student materials list
--teacher prep and directions
--a full-color classroom poster
--8-page student booklet, guiding students through the engineering process (4 full-sized pages, printed back-to-back, folded in half)
--1 follow-up/reflection page
