Here is a great activity to add to your fall classroom line up! It's a science lab, The Candy Corn Challenge. Your students need to design a boat out of tin foil to float the longest as it takes on candy corn one at a time. The boat that can hold the MOST candy corn without taking on water, WINS!
This is a STEM Lab that is also offered in my money saving SEASONAL STEM ACTIVITY BUNDLE
This activity is set up following the scientific method, but you can choose to use all of the materials or not. This is not only a great science lab, but it also has students work collaboratively, talk, have fun, etc. which also makes it a great class team building activity!

1 Teacher Direction Sheet (you can adapt to how YOU would use it, too!)
1 Student Direction Sheet
1 Teacher recording sheet to project onto an Elmo to record student candy corn challenge results

I hope that you enjoy this product as part of your fun fall line-up! :)
