STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
Once a month we complete a STEM challenge to stretch our learning.
In September we completed the Paper Chain Challenge. Everyone was given the same materials: a piece of A4 paper, a scissors, and a glue. The challenge was to create the longest possible paper chain.
We had to think about what was the best approach to this challenge – long strips? Wide strips? Big loops? Small loops? We problem solved as we worked and ended up with some very long paper chains!
