Now you can integrate science, reading, math, and writing with these fun activities. You'll get five complete lessons that'll make lesson planning a breeze.

This resource DOES NOT include videos as we encourage students to think creatively. I've included pictures for each project for teacher reference only. Please download the preview to see a sample of each STEM challenge.

Challenges include:

❄️Speed Skater: Using only pipe cleaners, straws, and a mint, create a model of a speed skater that stands upright on two legs for at least 30 seconds.

❄️Curling: Create a curling broom that helps your stone score the most points.

❄️Alpine Skiing: Create an alpine skiing course that is at least two feet long, but no more than three feet long. The course must have a start, six turns, and a finish.

❄️Hockey: Create a hockey goal that is exactly six inches wide. Use only straws and pipe cleaners in your design.

❄️Bobsled: Using recycled materials, create a bobsled course that has at least five turns and one straight section. Use a timer to test your bobsled team sitting upright and laying down.
