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 amount of seeds at my school wins a science gift basket. Teachers are able to extend the activity if they choose!
We get the pumpkins from our local grocery store. Our PTA purchases them for each classroom!
This is a great way to get whole building involvement in STEM/science! We use this monthly challenge in OCTOBER!
