Ready to add a competitive edge to your STEM Bins while your students practice problem solving, spatial reasoning, and logical thinking?!
With STEM Bins Speed Builds for K-5th Grade, groups of 2-4 students students race to complete leveled puzzle challenges for six different building materials!
STEM Bins Speed Builds are designed to supplement my original STEM Bins pack. They are ideal for hands-on morning work, early finishers, enrichment, and team building. Two different difficulty levels are provided: “Build it Flat” and “Build it Up” to accommodate a range of learning levels. "Build it Flat” cards are recommended for Pre-K-2nd Grade and "Build it Up” cards are recommended for advanced 1st Grade-5th Grade. There are 12 cards provided per difficulty level and 6 different choices for STEM Bins materials.
Groups of 2-4 students race to build each challenge card the fastest. The first student to complete the build hits a buzzer or bell and “wins” that card. Play continues for the full set of cards.
Students work through each challenge card independently. They may choose to time themselves with a stopwatch.
