Teaching STEM through Fairy Tales II- The Frog Prince

FairyTales_II

In our latest series, Teaching STEM through Fairy Tales II, students are challenged to work in teams  to help our fairy tale characters.  In the tale of The Frog Prince, the princess loses her ball at the bottom of the pond and a friendly frog promises to retrieve it if she promises to let him live with her in the castle.

Students work to design and build an arm/crane that will help the princess retrieve her ball.  In completing this design challenge, students build their teamwork skills, use the Engineering Design Process and practice NGSS Engineering Design Performance Expectations.
