    What Teachers are saying about these STEM Activities and Challenges:

    "This purchase was TOTALLY worth it! The videos were very engaging and to the point. You can easily front-load info (or not). My class had a blast with the bobsled and snowboarding. They can't wait do the rest. This was easy prep and clean up. Thanks so much!!"

    "Best Olympic unit on TPT!"

    "I used these stem activities last year during the Olympics and now I am using them for a "Winter" theme. We live in an area that gets lots of snow so the kids can make great connections to these activities."

    "The students had so much fun putting each of the competitions together and loved seeing everyone else's designs and ideas! Well worth the money since it is very well put together. "

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
    Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs.
    Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.
    Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. Examples could include an unbalanced force on one side of a ball can make it start moving; and, balanced forces pushing on a box from both sides will not produce any motion at all. Assessment is limited to one variable at a time: number, size, or direction of forces. Assessment does not include quantitative force size, only qualitative and relative. Assessment is limited to gravity being addressed as a force that pulls objects down.
    Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
