Toy Designer Recycling Earth Day STEM Challenge

Toy Designer Recycling Earth Day STEM Challenge


Integrate STEM in your classroom this Earth Day with Build a Recycled Toy STEM Challenge!

Engage students with a super fun Recycling STEM challenge! In this STEM project, students collect and build a unique Toy from various recyclables. A letter to parents is included to help facilitate the collection of recyclables.

Math Integration:

They must use money to budget how much of each item to purchase before designing and building their birdhouse. (We included multiple options for the budgeting worksheet for easy differentiation).

The STEM Process:

Students develop critical thinking and engineering skills. Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.

Aligns with NGSS(Next Gen Science Standards) and Common Core.

Amazing resource for STEM club, STEM teachers, elementary librarians, parents who love hands-on learning, and elementary teachers who want to create a hands-on educational environment in their classroom!
