FUN SCIENTIFIC METHOD ACTIVITY: Get your students to explore the scientific method by saving "Sam". A great and fun group activity for students to explore the scientific method: All you need is a gummy worm, a life saver, 4 paper clips and a plastic cup.
Listening - Even though this says "listening game for adults", I think it would be great for the elementary classroom as well. It gives students the opportunity to strengthen listening skills as well as cooperation skills, plus it would be fun!
I could use this activity as an ice breaker for the first week of school or as a classroom community builder. I could have the students sit in a circle or break them up into small groups and work on the ice breaker together.
