Halloween STEM Challenges: Looking for ways to keep your students engaged in learning before and after Halloween? These challenges require hands-on problem-solving, critical thinking, and cooperative work. Modifications available for grades 2 - 8. (Wings Wanted, Creature Catcher, Treat Toss, Bone Bridge, and Ghosts in the Graveyard)
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 build a series on one side, then a parallel on the other with certain parameters for the switches. The students have an amazing time and there is always 100% participation and together we saved those lights from a trip to the landfill!
