Are you ready for a STEAM challenge?

This week’s challenge is: A Raft for the Gingerbread man!

Oh no! The Gingerbread Man has outrun many creatures, but now he is on a riverbank and can run no more. Don’t let the sly fox trick him and eat him up! Instead you can help the Gingerbread Man by building him a raft using just straws and pipe cleaners. When you are done building, tape a quarter to your paper gingerbread man and test out your raft in a bucket or your sink.

For Grades K-8
