St. Patrick's Day STEM Challenge: Leprechaun Lockdown


This STEM challenge is a St. Patty's classic almost as old as time, so I've added a twist and a few extensions to keep it fresh!  

St. Patrick's Day STEM Challenge: In Leprechaun Lockdown, students create a leprechaun trap -- with a twist! Comes with modifications for grades 2-8.



Premise

Working against a criteria & constraints list, and armed with a Leprechaun Lore List, students create a design to lure and safely trap & contain a leprechaun!

Where Can I Find Out More?

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








Are There Other Challenges Like This?



Of course! I can't help myself! I have created 5 challenges for St. Pat's! You can find the overview of each on this blog post. These challenges will all post by March 12, 2017. Each challenge will be linked to the post linked above, so be sure to check back weekly! 

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!
