I've had a few PMs requesting info about these activities. Here are links for instructions on the Crossing the Peanut Butter River and Unravel the Human Knot. I will attach the Save Fred doc.

Save Fred Analysis Sheet

dynamec --Use groups of 4.

You don't have to use the activity with a focus on the Scientific Method. I just do it for team building. This sheet is a way to get more out of it than just fun.

For the Peanut Butter River activity, how many kids do you put in a group at a time? I'm going to use carpet squares but I couldn't wrap my head around how many kids could actually get across the river using them.

Thanks!

I did the Save Fred lesson at the beginning of last year and my kids loved it! It was great for working together and w/o a road map. It was interesting to see how my gifted vs reg. approached this problem w/most of my reg. guiding the rest to figure it out. Looping so can't do it this year, but will try the p.b river lesson. Thanks NeeCee for sharing!

* I had them in groups of 2 for Save Fred and it worked out well. Too many cooks in the kitchen might cause problems.

NeeCee,
I would love to be a student in your classroom. You post some amazing activities that I bet your kids love. You seem to be a very creative and spontaneous person. Thanks for all the ideas I have found on PT from you over the summer!

I can't wait to share these two activities with my husband (who teaches the other section of 5th grade at my school). I am getting excited for the school year!

Thanks for the ideas and detailed instructions!!
