Can your group plant five lima beans that grow to the tallest average height in 30 days?
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 tallest plants on average at my school wins a science gift basket. Teachers are able to extend the activity if they choose!
We have classrooms divide kids into five to six small groups for this challenge.
This is a great way to get whole building involvement in science and STEM! The file includes two related book recommendations as well. We use this monthly challenge in MAY!
