Are you looking for a fun first day or first week activity for your science class? Try playing "Would You Rather..." with your kids. I have taken this popular game and paired questions up with scientists and engineers from a range of fields. Students will have fun as they get to know each other and a little about contributions of scientists both past and present. Throw in a little candy and a souvenir trading card and you will be a hit. You can tailor this activity to be 15 minutes up to 50. If you already do a project on famous scientists, you can use this as an introduction. If you already have your first week planned, incorporate this activity during days with wacky schedules for assemblies or testing. However you choose to use this, your kids will have a great time working together, learning a little about each other as well as some of your regular classroom routines.
