Can your classroom’s five groups grow the tallest grass on average in a 30 day period?
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 highest average grass growth at my school wins a science goodie bag of items. Teachers are able to extend the activity if they choose!
I found the supplies at my grocery store and plant store. You can also find them in bulk on-line.
This is a great way to get whole building involvement in science and STEM! We use this monthly challenge in MAY of year #2!
