🎃HALLOWEEN PUMPKIN STEM🎃 Let’s be honest. Our students on Halloween are on ANOTHER level!! I always love doing STEM projects on holidays at school. If you can’t beat them, join them! It’s going to be a crazy day so why fight it? We have engineering standards that we have to hit so these quick STEM projects are perfect!! •
The students are challenged to build the tallest & cheapest pumpkin stand for our local pumpkin patch! There is a story that goes along with it, a specific challenge, requirements, and the materials cost money! The students work in groups of 2-4 to plan out their stand, draw a model, gather materials, & build their stand! At the end, we test all of their pumpkin stands together! We did this activity last year and it was a blast! The winning team obviously gets a bag of candy because IT’S HALLOWEEN!👻 •
This STEM project includes a recording sheet for students, a PowerPoint that goes over the story, instructions, costs, and guidelines. The best part is that it is all editable! Don’t have certain materials available? No problem! Just change what the students can build with base off what you have in your classroom already!!
