This is a great first day activity for any class, especially science! Students will work together in teams to create a simple device that will move and stack cups into a pyramid, then they will take the same device they created and move skittles a certain distance and into a goalie cup all following specific rules like not touching the cups and if cups or skittles are dropped, they must restart! The students love this introduction activity! There is also a follow up slide where students brainstorm what they think they will be doing in science, what types of procedures they should follow allowing students to think about the importance of rules, following them, and working as teams. Enjoy! If you have any questions about the activity and how to set it up, please contact me!
