Limited Capacity filling up

Students will love this STEM activity using the classic fairy tale of Rapunzel.  The lesson will begin by the story being read aloud so that the students have a basis for the activity. After reading the story the students will be given their tasks of creating an escape for Rapunzel. The students will receive different tools to construct their tower escape with. Some of the tools include: yarn, paper towel rolls, tape, scissors, pom-pom balls, paper, plastic cups, and craft sticks. Pairs of students will first brainstorm ideas of what a safe escape route for Rapunzel might look like. Students will draw their ideas/plans before beginning to construct.  After the pair has agreed on the plan they will then begin constructing an escape. Once the escape is completed the students will test the escape and determine if Rapunzel was able to exit successfully and is unharmed. Once the escape has been tested the students will take time to evaluate and reflect their design. They will answer questions such as: “Did our escape route work?”  “What could we do to modify our escape?”  “If the escape didn’t work what might Rapunzel try next time?”  After the students complete the reflection questions they will draw and write a step by step guide illustrating how they constructed their escape. Students are sure to enjoy this time of collaboration!
