PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great station activity packet for the following:
1) Cranberry Weight Station
Essential Question: How of the following are equal in weight to 20
cranberries?
* paperclips
* cheerios
* tiles

2) Cranberry playdough
Each group should have a chance to mix:
1.5 cups cornstarch
1/2 can cranberry sauce

Let the students play with it, write about how it feels, smells, and looks. I then bagged some up for kids to take home.

3) Taste Test Station
The students get a chance to try each of the following:
* Raw cranberry
* Cranberry sauce
* Cranberry juice

Then they should write about how each one tastes (using creative adjectives), and about their favorite and least favorite.

4) Thanksgiving Food Science
Each child gets 2 clear plastic cups. They should fill one 2/3 full of water and fill one 2/3 full of sprite. Have them write a prediction for what they think will happen when you put 3 cranberries in each (write about it).
Next, have them add the cranberries and write about what happened. They should explain if it was or was not different from their prediction.

I also had some facts about cranberries at a fifth station. I called it my "All About Cranberries Reading Station" and had some comprehension questions for them to answer after reading the facts.

Have fun!
