This is a fabulous science inquiry activity for the first week of school. A fun, simple lab that will get your students to start "thinking like scientists". Students are challenged to save Walter the gummy worm from 'drowning'. Students work to actively solve a problem, collaborate ideas and analyze effectiveness of their solutions.
Only simple materials are used and set-up is easy.
This activity is fun for kids and fun to watch! It's amazing watching their critical thinking process.
