I teach a 5th grade sp ed class 2x week. I do stem activities with them. I did purchase some challenges from TPT but I'm not finding any more that I love.. They need to be able to be done in 35 minutes or so. Low prep a must (I've already spent tons of money!!) so far I've done things like gummy bear tower, make a racing car using a shoebox and old CD's, pringles challenge, make a maze... and some other one. Please if you have any good one, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks.. meanwhile I'll keep surfing t he internet.. TIa

We just did this one on Friday. Spaghetti tower. They get 20 pieces of spaghetti, yard of tape, yard of string, one marshmallow. They have to build the tallest tower that will support the marshmallow on top in 18 minutes. There is a great Ted Talk to go along with the activity. Let me know if you need more info.
