Integrate STEM in Your Classroom at the End of the School Year!
Make learning fun with this water bottle flipping STEM challenge students love! There are three challenges included. Super fun activity for the End of the Year!
Students will investigate which water level, bottle size, and bottle style is the best for water bottle flipping.
The STEM 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.
Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM Teachers, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom! This activity is an excellent STEM Center or as a whole classroom experience!
Aligns with NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
What teachers are saying about Water Bottle Flip STEM Challenges!
"So much fun! I used them at the end of last year and the first day of this year my new students asked if they could do it." - Kayla L.
"I used this lesson as an enrichment opportunity students had to earn. It was really motivating because they always want to flip their milk cartons at breakfast and I wont allow it but now they had a chance to flip something without getting in trouble. They really enjoy it and because they were engaged we got deep into the scientific method. I highly recommend this product." - Keely H.
"My students loved doing this experiment! I like the fact that there is more than one version of the experiment so we can do this again later." - Gail L.
"This was a high-quality end of the year STEM activity for rambunctious fourth graders. it kept them engaged and filled up that awkward time after testing and after packing up the room."
"My 5th graders are obsessed with flipping their water bottles so why not make it educational! They actually didn't mind that I made it educational and became very competitive. Fun way to learn hands on !' - Colleen R.
"I must admit I considered this last year and hesitated, fearing it could trigger a classroom behavior control issue. I am thrilled to report all students on task, completely engaged and actively discussing results that led to further questioning and possible future investigations. One of the best activities I have done!" - Lizabeth L.
Other STEM Challenges your students will love!
