Valentine's Day STEM Challenge: Candy / Confection Container


Valentine's Day STEM Challenge: In Candy/Confection Container, students create a container that keeps its contents secure and is small, stackable, and eye-catching! Comes with modifications for grades 2-8.



This challenge is simple on the outside, but oh so sweet on the inside! The best part is that you can add in so many math activities to extend. Just think of all the math that goes into creating products for retail: price, margin, tax, shipping & delivery costs, fitting items on shelves...The list goes on and on, so you can get as deep in the weeds as you like!

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 Candy/Confection Container:








Are There Other Challenges Like This?


Of course! I have five Valentine's Day STEM Challenges ready to go! You can find an overview of each on this blog post.  Each individual challenge will get its own video walk through and blog post starting with Cupid's Quiver on January 19, 2017 and ending with Cards in the Clouds on February 12 (all but the last will post on Thursdays).


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