Folk toy turned engineering and STEAM project! Start with noticing and wondering using the first 12 seconds of the video below and then let students explore this pHun phenomenon. Templates for small, medium (original scale), and large Wobble Walkers can also be found below. Cut out as rectangle first and then round off feet to wobble your walker. Once students have engineered their walker to make it better, they can turn it into their animal of choice by decorating it. Then, storytelling and other pHun is guaranteed!

Thanks to Sherrie Dennis – STEMAZing Robot General and SARSEF Manager of STEM Curriculum and Instruction – for developing and sharing this great lesson.

 

Scroll down for templates. The first is the original size of the Wobble Walker. There are also templates which have been scaled down (small) and scaled up (large).
