Product Description

Try 10 STEM challenges you can do with commonly found household items!

STEM activities! Do you love doing STEM challenges with your students or children? This pack has 10 STEM challenges you can do with readily available materials, plus a bonus challenge as well! These are wonderful for team-building and can be used with a wide grade range. If you are a homeschooler looking for a co-op resource, this can be used in that setting.

Contents
10 STEM challenges, each with a description, photographs of examples, a display page stating the challenge, as well as 5 "Talk Like an Engineer" word cards with relevant vocabulary.
Design a Bridge
Design a Paper Airplane
Design a Shelter
Tallest Tower
Challenging Maze
Pompom Launcher
Float a Boat
Fast & Slow Sled
What a Drag
Cantilever Challenge
BONUS: All Aboard the Gear Train

Also included:
Graphic organizer (1 page) and engineering report (2 pages). Choose either to document each challenge, or use the provided interactive pages (2) in your science notebooks.

You can get more of an idea what these challenges are like in this blog post, which highlights three of the challenges above (though it doesn't contain all the support materials that are included in the paid file, it is a sample of the challenges above).

Materials can be of your own choice - I tend to use office supplies and recyclables for almost everything in this pack!  Things like tape, rubber bands, binder clips, and cardboard will come in handy.

As a former engineer and current homeschooling parent, I love creating fun and practical-life math units as well as hands-on math and science experiments! You can read about some of the experiments and activities we've done on my momgineer blog, or like my Facebook page for updates. I have two very curious home learners that keep me on my toes constantly creating new activities and games, as this is how they best learn. I primarily create these materials for them for our homeschool classroom, but I have also created units for other homeschooling families.
