STEM: Island Survival CCSS
This is my brand new STEM packet for 5th grade, all about Island Survival. This packet is a 4 week long activity, designed around 3 different experiments that tie in the Common Core Standards. The experiments include:

Designing and Building a Water Filtration System
Growing Seeds in Soil and Water using Fresh Water and Salt Water
Building a Raft

Students will also be required to document their progress through photos and video, so that they can create a multimedia presentation at the end of the project.

***These activities also require additional materials which are easy to come by:
Plastic water bottles (4 per group)
Plastic soda bottles (1 per group)
Plastic cups (16 per group)
Small rocks (2-3 cups per group)
Sand (2-3 cups per group)
Old t-shirts (1 per group)
Dirt (1 large Ziploc bag per group)
Variety of edible plant seeds, at least 8 different kinds (tomato, lettuce, etc…)
Salt (1 large container per group)
Sticks (10 per group)
String (1 roll per group)
Roll of plastic trash bags (1 bag per group)
Duct tape (1 roll per group)
Foam pool noodles (1 per group)
Poster board (1 per group)
Rubber bands (5-10 per group)
A container large enough to hold water for testing floatation (ideally 1 per group but can be just 1 for the class)***
