Pumpkin Chuckin' STEM Challenge!

Have a little fun with fall! And mini pumpkins!

What student wouldn’t be engaged in the learning process of a Pumpkin Chuckin’ Challenge?!

This pack contains all the information you need: student lab booklet, teacher instructions, and photographs are all included.

Using simple, inexpensive materials, you can engage your students in the engineering process!  This is a looser design than strict catapult challenges.  This allows students more freedom with design.  They can use what they know about catapults to design something, or they could create something like a sling shot, or totally surprise you with something new!

This is 20 pages- 12 pages of teacher directions and and 8 page student booklet.

It's a 4-5 day activity or 1 long if you have the same students all day and would like to make a themed day of it.  It allows not only design and testing, but time to redesign or alter based on results and try again.  We often forget that part when leading a science exploration.

Head on over to my TPT store or Teacher's Notebook store and download yours today!
