What is STEM?
STEM challenges are not just about building things.
★ presenting students with an authentic problem
★ challenging students to collaborate for possible solutions
★ making specific plans for the solution
★ testing the model to see if it solves the problem
★ reflecting, revising, and re-testing
★ reflecting on success and recognizing mistakes as part of the process
This is super popular bundle that integrates hands-on STEM challenges with GROWTH MINDSET concepts!
Each fairy tale uses a funny partner play script to explore characters that have either growth mindsets or very fixed mindsets! There are printable response pages to further solidify the concepts.
Each story script ends with a STEM challenge. Students are prompted to help the characters solve their problem by building with the materials you provide for them. There is a workbook to record ideas, brainstorming, steps and improvements made, and reflection on the collaboration process.
There are 8 complete sets included (250+ pages) and this set uses WORKBOOKS.

Looking for engaging SEASONAL STEM challenges? Similar to the previous STEM bundles described above, these challenges begin with a simple partner play to set up the “reason” for the challenge – a practice problem that students can relate to and invest in as motivation for their challenge. This approach integrates literacy into STEM lessons, and makes the challenges more purposeful and authentic.
