How many pumpkin plant sprouts can your classroom grow in a one month period? How tall are your sprouts on average?
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 grows the most pumpkin sprouts at my school wins a science goodie bag. Teachers are able to extend the activity if they choose!
You can keep the pumpkin sprouts all year and plant them in the spring!
This is a great way to get whole building involvement in science and STEM! We use this monthly challenge in OCTOBER of year #2!
