STEM Challenge Cards - Upper Years

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 10 pages | Years: 4 - 6

A set of 20 STEM challenge cards for students, suitable for the upper year levels.

Use these STEM challenge cards to encourage critical thinking and problem-solving.

You may like to print out the task cards on A4 or larger and laminate them for your students to pick from. These task cards can also be printed multiple to a page.

The tasks enable students to use a variety of materials to design and make new products or to solve design challenges. The tasks cover a range of time allocations, making them ideal for either a quick activity or a more extended lesson.
