Set the tone of your science class during the first days of school with this back to school inquiry investigation
Students will use inquiry and the scientific method to either create the best coffee cup in the creative cup challenge or be part of a consumer coalition and test which paper towel is the best. Both investigations require the students to work collaboratively with their groups and create their own experiments.
Included in this activity:
- Two different inquiry investigations (Creative Cup Competition and Consumer Testing: best paper towel)
- Student handouts and instructions
- Teacher guide for both
