Eyeball STEM Challenge Lesson Plan

Give the kids some play dough and some eyeballs. Tell them their challenge is to create the biggest structure they can using just those two ingredients.

Some children may try to stack the eyeballs straight into the air, while others might try to create a larger base and create a more stable structure.

The trick to this activity is including enough play dough so that the eyeballs don’t bounce away.

The eyeballs don’t really stick to the dough, which gives this activity more of a challenge.

For older kids, see if they can recreate famous landmarks out of eyeballs.
