Christmas/Winter STEM Challenges: Sleigh/Sled & Slope

WINTER - CHRISTMAS STEM Challenge: In Sleigh/Sled & Slope, students create a ramp and sled designed to transport cargo safely and travel the maximum distance. Comes with modifications for grades 2-8.




You are almost to Winter Break! Excitement is in the air, but you still want to be somewhat responsible. After all, there really isn't any instructional time you can afford to waste. And there's the dilemma: how can you have fun and enjoy the holidays without wasting instructional time? STEM Challenges ... the answer is always STEM Challenges! :) 

Premise

In Sleigh/Sled & Slope, students create a ramp and sled designed to transport cargo safely and travel the maximum distance. This one comes with 2 versions: winter and Christmas, so if your school says Christmas activities are a no-no, I've got you covered.


Where Can I Find Out More?

As you may already be aware, I've found creating video walk-throughs of my STEM challenges is a great way to explain the important details: materials, set-up, tips, modifications, extensions, and more! Check out the video below to learn more about Sleigh/Sled & Slope:







Are There Other Challenges Like This?

Of course! I can't help myself! I have created 5 for Christmas/Winter. You can find the overview of each on this blog post. This is the second of the individual posts, and one will follow each week through Dec. 22, 2016. Please reach out with any questions and tag me in photos of your students' work on Facebook & Instagram if you want to give me a smile this holiday season!

You can find even more STEM challenges in my Mega Bundle, on this blog, and on my YouTube channel!
