This is a school-wide monthly challenge activity that I have developed for my own building. Each classroom will receive the materials needed to complete the challenge and classrooms will post their results in a central location. The classroom that has the largest average diameter for their bubbles at my school wins a science gift basket. Teachers are able to extend the activity if they choose!
We have classrooms make their own homemade bubble solution and the kids make wands from pipe cleaners.
We use the books, "Pop! A Book about Bubbles" and "Bubble Trouble", with this challenge as literature connections.
This is a great way to get whole building involvement in science and STEM! We use this monthly challenge in DECEMBER!
