Teaching STEM through Fairy Tales: Little Red Riding Hood

In the tale of Little Red Riding Hood, Red sets off to visit her grandmother with her basket filled with goodies from her mother.  In this week’s challenge, students will work to design a basket that will hold the most weight.

Because this challenge is a little tougher since supplies are limited, I prefer for students to work in pairs. This is also a good challenge for students to either learn or review data collection as they test each one of their designs and use the Engineering Design Process for improvement.
