Hanging Nails Challenge - Super Value Guided-Inquiry Kit
Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

The challenge in this inquiry-based kit is to arrange 10 nails so they will hang in perfect balance on the head of one other nail. No other materials may be used! Teachers will enjoy observing the novel problem-solving strategies students use to achieve the goal. Once this challenge is mastered, learning continues as careful observations naturally lead to certain questions—how, what if, why? The answers to these questions are sought in further experimentation, which leads to more observations and further questions—the scientific method in action! Includes Teacher Notes with helpful teaching tips, reproducible student worksheets, and detailed background information.

Super Value Kit is complete for 8 student groups. All materials are reusable!
