Tubeapalooza: Paper towel tube ramps... Taking it to the next level. Raid the recycle bin and give ramp options galore! (paper towel tubes, toilet paper tubes, egg cartons, pie tins, baby food snack containers, ribbon spools...)
Wow--totally great fundraising auction idea! This could all take place during a recess at school. A couple white sheets, a note sent home instsructing mom to dress the kids in colorful clothes, and a ladder (and a photographer who is not afraid of heights!). So fun!!! You could also do shapes...or spell out the name of the school!
Fun idea for first day of class? Make hands, put their names or picture in their hand (what they want to learn that year?, favorite science subject? or something to reflect back upon) and in last week have them update their goals, and take their picture next to the poster and give them a copy of the picture at the end of class.
