      You might also want to add a "life science" tag to this activity to make it easier for your colleagues to find and use.
  •  
    Students take surveys of different areas to find the best habitat for dandelions. They will think and hypothesize all while being engaged by being outdoors.

How Many Peas Fill the Classroom? < Teaching Channel - 1 views

    • Lori Jones
       
      Common core math 5.MD.4  I like that this allows students to ponder different questions, think through different ideas on how to calculate it, and in the process, learn about volume.  Students who need an extra challenge could determine how many peas would fill their homes, or how many to fill the school.  Students needing extra assistance can be paired with students who are stronger in math, and/or work with the teacher in small groups.

      Students could each have a different "job" to differentiate skills.  Teacher could group the students of different abilities together.  Students could wear lab glasses as they measure.

    This is a terrific activity that can help students with observations and predictions.  It is perfect for cooperative learning.

      2.OA.2 Second grade game that can be utilized in small groups or independently.  Because there is a "challenge", it allows students who work faster to continue to look for new solutions.  This would be a great "I'm already finished!" activity!
