STEM Challenges for grades 2-5 provides a fun way to enhance STEM learning in the classroom. This boxed set includes 30 challenge cardsﾗ10 each for the three categories of physical science, life science, and earth and space science. Designed to capture a studentﾒs attention, challenges are diverse, simple, and easy to complete and include these fun activities: creating structures and bridges, experimenting with camouflage, learning how to dig for “fossils,” and more.
Each challenge card features two sidesﾗthe front side includes the challenge and a visual list of materials needed to complete the challenge. The back of the card is ideal for extended learning and includes hints, questions, and explanations of the science behind the challenge. Each activity uses common materials and can be completed individually or during whole-class instruction.
