Product Description
The Great Arctic Circle STEM Challenge includes 5 different STEM activities centered around the story about a group of stranded arctic explorers. After hearing the story of the failed expedition, students will read 5 diary entries. Each one will challenge them to design something to help the group make it back to base camp.

Includes the following challenges:

• Arctic Architect: Construct An Igloo
• Bundle Up: Design A Blanket
• Polar Bear Defense: Snowball Shooter
• Lookout Mountain: Build A Tower
• Lookout Mountain: Design A Parachute

These STEM challenges use common materials that you probably already have in your classroom (Please see the preview for a list). They incorporate concepts of linear measurement, weight measurement, area, force and motion, properties of shapes, simple machines, and scientific process.
