Looking for a unique Christmas gift for your students that engaging and fun? This Science in A Bag product includes 3 hands on activities for students to do at home. I purposefully chose inexpensive and easy to find materials to make this an easy to implement tradition.
Simply gather the materials, print off the activity directions and put everything in a gallon ziploc bag. Staple on the topper and you're all set!
The activities include:
Activity 1: Mystery Substance: Students add water to some insta snow powder and watch it expand.
Activity 2: Crystal Trees: Students dissolve salt in water and then pour it onto a Christmas Tree pattern. After a few days the water evaporates and leaves beautiful salt crystals behind.
Activity 3: Balloon Rocket Santa: Students make a simple balloon rocket from fishing line and a straw and use a balloon to send Santa on his way.
Other options for this download: Separate the activities and use them as centers.
