Children participate in several relay games in small groups.  In this creating outdoor relay races lesson, students develop motor skills and engage in activities that encourage teamwork and creative thinking.  Students implement different ways to get a ball from the front to the back of a line. 
Students receive a class score of 1-5 for appropriate behavior and participation during P.E. class. When class exits P.E., they move the class ant to a different fruit or vegetable. Each piece of food is worth 5 points, so some may be in between pieces.
In this social studies worksheet, students read about the history of the Olympic games. Students read the Olympic creed and the Olympic oath. Students answer 5 questions. Note: This was written for the 2002 Winter Olympics but is general enough to be used in any Olympic year.
Young scholars discuss how working with others can help them accomplish a goal. In groups, they participate in a paperclip gum challenge. They are given a set amount of time to make the longest object possible without talking at all. They discuss what was easy and hard about this project.
Students increase their knowledge base of the maple syrup process and increase their skills of organization, technology, research, teamwork-cooperation, and oral presentation. Students use a team approach to choose a topic pertaining to maple sugar time. Students then evaluate and review materials, brainstorm topics and state outcomes of project.
Students work together in groups to complete an astronomy project. In the classroom, they find real objects to represent various objects in the solar system. After going outside, they practice using a distance scale and use their objects to create a model of the solar system.
Students examine the different members of food safety teams and their role in the food safety cycle. They study how these teams work together to keep our food safe.
Young scholars take the opportunity to discover how teamwork can be used for problem solving and critical thinking skills. They use a duplicated picture of The Colossal Head which is cut into puzzle pieces and reassemble.
Teamwork and collaboration are such important skills to foster in young children. The goal of this lesson is for teams to create a collaborative project while learning how to work as a unit. In small groups, the class creates snowmen for the bulletin board. Group members then take turns describing how each individual helped finish the creation. The lesson finishes with a writing assignment; each child composes a three-sentence story about what their snowman does at night.
There is no "I" in team! Help your young learners understand the importance of knowing what each teammate's individual responsibilities are when performing in a group, and how each member's role contributes to the greater whole of the team. This is a great way to begin a discussion on what it takes to demonstrate proper sportsmanship and achieve great teamwork!
After reading about the history and recycling of paper, creative crafters collaborate to think of a new process for making recycled paper. A complete teacher's guide and student worksheets are included. There is no written procedure for the students in making the paper; it is an exercise in design and critical thinking. You will, however, need to instruct learners on how to use mesh wire and wooden blocks for drying recycled papers.
Here is a tasty challenge, especially for middle school engineers: design a container that meets mass and volume criteria, and will safely transport a tortilla or potato chip through the mail without damaging it! Mostly, this is a crisp lesson in engineering design. What fun it will be to receive the packages back and open them to find out which team will reign as the chip-shipping champions!
Ahoy, matey! Here is an engineering expedition that mini mariners are sure to be swept away by! After reading a brief description and history of periscopes, they work in crews to construct one. Use this activity to enhance a lesson plan on mirrors and reflection, as an enrichment when studying ocean navigation, or simply as intended: an engineering project.
Have your physical scientists try some engineering origami by examining how the folding of materials can have practical and beneficial applications. Teams use their convoluted cortexes to collaborate on constructing a solar panel that is 30 x 90 cm in size, but that will fit into a standard foil dispensing box. Student handout pages include background reading information, a place to design their panels, and reflection questions. Consider having real examples of foldable items avaiable for your lesson, such as an umbrella in its cover, a collapsible cup or telescope, or a hand fan.
A fun and challenging activity for nearly any age group, partners must work together to build the tallest structure possible using paper clips, straws, and pipe cleaners. In addition to being tall, the structure must also be able to support a golf ball for two minutes. 
Providing clean water to a town is quite a feat... is your class up for the challenge? After a short reading about water towers, groups work together to design a working water delivery system. The water flow must be adjustable (able to turn on and off) and the water must move from the storage container to a new location. When finished with the design and creation, each learner answers questions about the project.
In an effort to practice engineering design, STEM classes break out into teams and endeavor to make a working ink pen. To prepare, they read about writing implements through history, patents, and viscosity of liquids. Armed with this information, they make their plans. A worksheet with seven reflection questions is provided for processing. This would be a fun challenge for junior high engineers.

New Review Dispenser Designs

After reading about the history of tape dispensers, learners compare and contrast different dispenser designs. Next, teams work within budgetary and time constraints to design a better dispenser. When finished, each engineer reflects on the experience and answers some evaluation questions. 
In collaborative groups, emerging engineers or environmental scientists plan and construct a water wheel or watermill that rotates for a total of three minutes. Everything you need to carry out this lesson is included: objectives, background information (both historical and scientific), and more! This, and other lessons by the same publisher are ideal for bringing STEM activities into your classroom.
Engineering enthusiasts are sure to explode in understanding as they practice the engineering design process (EDP). A container of "toxic popcorn" is placed in the classroom. Teams must work together to devise a method for removing it safely. Plan on awarding successful teams with a delicious snack at the end of the challenge.
