C.S.I. " Curious STEM Investigators"

FOUR Engineering Activities!!

Perfect for:

  • group work
  • centers
  • substitute teachers
  • at home challenges
  • when time is limited and you only have 30-45 minutes

Everyone loves a mystery and telling your kids they are members of a C.S.I. organization will capture their attention.

After analyzing a bag of materials and a task card with an engineering challenge, students will collaborate to find a solution to the problem.

With easy to find supplies, a teacher guide, and simple instructions, these four C.S.I. mysteries are perfect when only a short period of time is available for a STEM lesson.

Let’s “Get Caught Engineering” with C.S.I.!

Includes: 4 mystery STEM challenges, teacher notes, student worksheets, inquiry questions, reflection sheet, a rubric, job cards, and an engineering design process poster.

We have another packet of C.S.I. STEM in a Bag activities!!
