The Brown Bag Art Challenge - STEAM project

Engineering, math, teamwork, problem-solving, art, and PHENOMENAL FUN!  Each student received a SECRET challenge hidden in a paper bag, such as building the strongest bridge, tallest tower, longest line, or building a house with windows and doors that can open.  They could only use construction paper, markers, a ruler, scissors, and tape.  ALSO, there was a 45 minute time limit. As groups finished, each student completed a reflection sheet about the project.

My 5th grade students loved this end of the year project! 

This was a teaching idea I got from Angela Watson of - this teacher ROCKS!
