Ms. Barbra’s class recently undertook the Frogs on a Log STEAM Challenge! Using only one sheet of copy paper, the children were challenged to create a “log” to lay across the bowl (pond). The bridge needed be able to support at least eight cubes (frogs).
Each group needed to:
ASK – What is the problem that needs to be solved?
PLAN – How can you achieve your goal?
CREATE – What does your idea look like?
TEST – What do you observe? Was your log strong enough to hold the frogs?
EVALUATE – Did your idea work? Describe each design’s strengths and weaknesses.
IMPROVE – What changes can be made to build an even stronger “log”?
They did a fantastic job!
