Posted: November 30, 2017


For our December, Christmas themed STEM Challenge we want to see your class “make” their own Christmas tree. Your class tree can be as big or as small as you like. You can have your students work in teams to create several different trees, or create a class tree as a whole group. Your tree can be 2D or 3D. You can make your tree from paper, pipe insulation, carboard, pvc pipe, felt, wood, things from nature, or any materials of your choosing. It is totally up to the imagination of you and your students.


We have included examples of maker-trees and decorating ideas. (See the attachmed document below.)


We have chosen decorations that can help meet curriculum outcomes in math, however you may choose any outcomes throughout the build process. We encourage you to continue to have your students write and present about their designs to meet literacy outcomes.


The deadline for submissions is December 19th.


Don’t forget to e-mail to sign up for the December challenge and remember to post pictures of your students competing in the challenge on your teacher page. If you need help posting pictures, please email and he can assist with this process. We love to see pictures of the process of the build, the curriculum outcomes being met, and the finished product.
