Girl Guide Activites
In this STEM challenge, students will be using materials to plan design a working water slide that will take a toy figure down the slide- without leaking water. The main materials for the slide part are not waterproof so students plan ahead for ways to line their slide so it won’t leak. The slide must also resemble a slide and have an access point- like a ladder. Students will use the steps of the Engineering Design Process as you follow the pages of detailed & labeled teacher directions pages.

STEM Challenges for elementary students! Students will design and build a structure to withstand a simulated earthquake. Photos of ways to build the shake tray are included. Kids use only a few materials that are easy to gather for the teacher and will be fun for kids to use in your classroom. The building of the structure and then testing it on your shake tray are so much fun. This STEM resource includes detailed teacher directions, photos, lab sheets, and rubrics.
After years of STEM activities, including towers, bridges, race cars, and rockets, one my favorites is the classic catapult challenge! I believe it incorporates all aspects of a quality STEM activity: easy math connection, engineering design process, student-driven learning, and hands-on fun! Read on to see my ideas to incorporate into your classroom or to download our TpT Catapult STEM Challenge!
Engineering activities for kids teach a lot of useful skills, like circuits, properties of matter, physics, design, spatial awareness, and more! Kids will have a blast with these engineering activity ideas and engineering for kids has never been so fun! #engineering #engineeringactivities #stemed #stemactivities
