These End of the Year STEM Challenges have science, technology, engineering, and measurement activities for your upper elementary kids that will really get their brains going until the end of the school year!
This activity can be connected to science content such as studying the difference between vertebrates and invertebrates or ways of transportation. There are also different things students can build their bridges to achieve: length, weight, or capacity.
Light Circuits: Depending on the grade level of the students, you can have them build a very simple circuit or a very complex circuit with both series and parallel circuits combined. For my students I have them use file folders in order to design and buil
Lesson Chemical Energy: Need a light? Use potato power! With this science experiment for kids, learn how chemical reactions take place between two dissimilar metals and how to create voltage. This is a classic STEM activity that's sure to please :)
