End of the Year STEM Activities!

STEM Activities, STEM resources

Teacher friends,
As you know the end of the year is slowly but surely approaching. You and your students could not be MORE READY! Real learning does not have to go out the window just yet, you just have to mask it such a way where it doesn't quite seem like learning to students... but it in fact, still is! 
STEM activities are the perfect way you and your students can survive until the end of the school year!

These End of the Year Challenges have science, technology, engineering, and measurement activities for your upper elementary kids that will really get their brains going until the end of the school year!


Challenge 1: Mini Golf - Hole in One Challenge!
Students must design a Mini Golf (one hole) that can be successfully completed in one stroke (a hole in one!). They must also craft a putter. Specific types of angles and obstacles in the course are required in their design.  ***for more information on the challenge, scroll down to the end of the post!

Challenge 2: Balloon Rocket Car!
Students must design a bottle rocket or car that is propelled only by the air escaping from a balloon. Students must decide what materials they want to use and how they are going to use them. Plastic bottles, tissue boxes, and milk cartons make great rocket cars! ***for more information on the challenge, scroll down to the end of the post!

Challenge 3: Construct a Trampoline!
Students must construct a trampoline that can bounce an object (such as a marble) after being dropped from 12 inches (1 ft) high. They must measure the height of the bounce and build the contraption that creates the highest bounce.

Integrating end of the year activities into the classroom can sometimes be tricky with upper elementary grade levels, but with STEM, celebrating the end of the year will be a blast!
