Get ready to engineer all things Winter (snowmen, snowflakes, and sleds)!
Most elementary teachers are more comfortable and knowledgeable with theme topics, so I have decided to create STEM challenge packs based on specific ones, like Winter!
This engineering challenge activity pack is one of many that I have created to use in my classroom! I sometimes place these challenges, one per table, and the students rotate around the room in order to complete them. There are no right or wrong answers, many different solutions will work! You could also rotate these challenges through a science center. I plan to complete these as a whole class activity, one-two per week during January! I store everything in a dollar store gift bag or plastic tub!
These activities are great to use throughout the winter months or even during the month of January. You can use all of them or just pick and choose! The materials required for these challenges are easy to find and inexpensive! There are five challenges included in this pack:
Snowman Cup Tower Challenge
Craft Stick Snowflake Challenge
Duct Tape Sled Challenge
Snowman Bowling Challenge
Plastic Cup Snowman Challenge
These STEM engineering and design challenges will help your students showcase their engineering skills! These challenges have quite a FUN factor and winter is a topic that gets all kids ready to have some inside fun! Who doesn't like winter?
