How much will your growing snake increase in size over a five day period in cold 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 longest snake after five days in cold water at my school wins a science goodie bag of growing creatures. Teachers are able to extend the activity if they choose!
I found the jumbo growing snakes at my local Dollar Tree. 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 MARCH of year #2!
