Product Description
For this project you will need growing gators, plastic containers, rulers, and cold water. There is a link in the product so you can order the gators! You may also be able to find them at your local dollar store.

The gators come in different quantities depending on your needs. I gave each table group one gator. Most kids know these gators grow, but many are surprised by how much they grow! We grow the gators over five days and then work on shrinking them over the next five days. Students make observations and take measurements each day (for growing and shrinking). We also take photos of the gators on Day 1 and Day 5 of growing and then on Day 5 of shrinking.

This is a fun and engaging science lab that gives kids the chance to make good observations and take accurate measurements.

Grow some gators in your classroom!
