Saving Sam is a great Back To School activity that my students love to complete each year! Not only does it promote teamwork, but it requires students to problem solve as well.What I love about this activity, besides the fact that my kids think it's FUN, is that I get to see first hand their problem solving skills, their ability to work together as a group, and I get a glimpse of their writing skills.
Free: 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
All I want is another episode where Sam and Dean go to a Supernatural convention and Sam runs into a bunch of Sam!girls who, not realizing who he is, go on and on and on about their favorite character and why he’s kind and beautiful and pure and just all these different things and about how Sam saved the world and just... I just want Sam to hear how amazing he is.
John: *passes of responsibility to Dean like normal* Bobby: *I'm tired of this shit* Cas: *confusion at anything relatively modern* Dean: *willing to deal with the problem because he loves saving people* Sam: *normal human who wants nothing to do with the supernatural*
