3 {Easy and CHEAP} Ocean Activities

Ocean Zone discovery bottles- fill the bottle with water (with blue food coloring) and vegetable oil. After the students shake them up, they will notice three distinct areas in their bottle as the oil and water settle. This is perfect for teachi

Turn Water Bottle Flipping into an educational STEM activity. Students experiment with what bottle size, shape, and water level are needed for water bottle flipping. This activity is great as an end of the year STEM activity!

Water Bottle Flipping STEM Challenge- NGSS Aligned

INTEGRATE STEM IN YOUR CLASSROOM! Make learning fun with this water bottle flipping STEM challenge students love! There are three challenges included: Students will investigate which water level, bottle size, and bottle style is the best for

Get your students pumped up for spring and STEM! Conduct an experiment to see which water bottle filled with jelly beans will land vertically the most times. Students make a prediction and test their hypothesis. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't. It aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
