Prepping the activity was quick and easy!
I printed the pages on cardstock to give them added durability and cut along the grey lines to separate the pieces.
Then I grabbed our geoboards and a handful of rubber bands.
We were ready to
STEM Geoboard Challenges
I’m embarrassed to admit it, but my stash of geoboards sat on the shelves for YEARS collecting dust. 🙈
I didn’t really know how I could make them engaging for kids and I was too busy trying to keep up on my to do list to dive in and figure it out.
I soooo wish I had these challenge cards back then!
To play, kids grabbed one card at a time and recreated it on their geoboard with rubber bands.
They had to count pegs, think about angles… they worked on so many geometry skills at once!
Stretch students who are ready for a challenge by having them draw mini models of their creations on the record sheet to practice scaling!
You can even have them create their own design in the box in the bottom right corner!
It’s such an easy way to differentiate for kids who can take it further.
