Each month at our school, all the students who did not receive office discipline referrals get to participate in a fun reward. This month, some of the STEM Sisters were in charge of planning the event so we decided to have students complete STEM challenges! Each grade level had a different challenge, but all were focused on engineering. The teachers reported that students had a great time working together.
Third grade’s challenge was to create a tower out of straws that would support a tennis ball. Fourth grade students built towers out of marshmallows and toothpicks. Fifth graders created bridges out of q-tips, pipe cleaners, and popsicle sticks.
The STEM Sisters are Elementary Teachers working together on STEM related topics and projects.
