How tall can your class grow corn plants on an ear of Indian corn in only a pan of water?
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 tallest corn plants in a 30 day period 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 dollar store. You can also find them on-line.
This is a great way to get whole building involvement in science and STEM! We use this monthly challenge in OCTOBER!
