Saving Sam -- Partners must save Sam by retrieving the life jacket from under the boat and putting it on Sam. Groups may use only paperclips. Kids cannot touch Sam, the boat, or the life preserver with their bare hands.

'Saving Sam' scientific method lesson- students have to figure out how to get the lifesaver onto the gummy worm using only paperclips. Fun for the end of the year too :)

Save Sam with STEM! With a gummy worm, gummy lifesaver, a cup, and a paperclip, students will work in teams of two to solve a STEM challenge. Based on a popular STEM activity, we have added the engineering design process to this free activity. Perfect for an introduction to engineering in grades k-6 or a staff workshop.

scientific method: Saving Sam  An excellent way to get students to explain their procedure. Have them write it out like they were explaining it to someone who had no idea what they were doing. 5th graders did this and loved it! They wanted to try it over and over to see if they could do it with less paper clips
