This string telephone experiment uses the scientific method to test different types of containers to see which ones work best as telephones. It involves making different string telephones and testing them out.

Included are:

● teacher notes

● a scientific method poster

● the directions for making the telephones

● the experiment and the worksheets to accompany it

● a follow-up worksheet.

String telephones are fun to use later for free time activities as well.

Here's what others say:

● My students enjoyed this project. They were so excited and engaged. Thanks!

●Great to use with design process for 3rd grade science!

Happy experimenting!
