As I have mentioned before, I love the Dollar Tree! I found packs of pipe cleaners there for $1 each. For this STEM Break, each teacher got one pack of pipe cleaners. Super easy! We have been on our millionth (that may be a bit of an exaggeration) day of indoor recess and these STEM Breaks are an engaging way to spend that indoor recess time!
All of my STEM Breaks can be extended with additional materials. They are designed to be a starting point!

These pipe cleaner towers look great displayed outside the classrooms! We have a display case in the front hallway of our building and we put them there for everyone to enjoy!
