Candy Cane Games

Students used various tools including string, plastic cups, candy canes, and even their own bodies to complete five separate STEM challenges featuring candy canes. Some of the activites included stacking candy canes, creating a zip line, and guiding their partner to drop the candy canes into a cup.

The festive activities encouraged the use of fine and gross motor skills, problem solving and collaboration. Sweet work, middle school!
