STEM Tip of the Week: Let them explore! Last week my fifth graders built Rube Goldberg devices and had a blast. (Yes, the one in the photo worked!) This week they will repeat this activity, but this time there will be construction rules! The time we took last week to learn how to set things up will pay off this week as the kids create their masterpieces!

Blast from the past- this is the very first resource I uploaded to my store. It is one I used with my third graders for YEARS and I loved it. They loved it and we used it all year long! Link in my profile!
Want to hear what a student said to me this week? My fifth graders are building Rube Goldberg chain reaction contraptions. I watched a team that started their device and it crashed. I asked, Has it worked? The reply, Not yet, but it's going to! They were not worried in the least. Have fun, do the best you can.
It's not too soon to think about Christmas STEM! Ideas on my blog today- including this cute little sleigh!
Ha! I don't think mean things. I just think random things and then have to pretend I was listening to you. #justsayin
