We had a STEM Friday before vacation.  Four kindergarten classes rotated to participate in four different challenges that related to our fairytale unit.  The challenges were:  build a bridge with given materials, see what materials would make a stronger house, design a way to climb up a given set of blocks and design an evil monster character that had to be four blocks tall.

 Below are some pictures of students working with a partner to design an evil character.  First the students had to design their character on paper.  Then they were able to use the materials to create.  The students worked hard and were very creative.  It was fun and lots of learning was going on.
