Gummy Worm Math: Measurement Never Tasted So Good!

Posted on January 20, 2012. Filed under: Common Core, Elementary math, Math Centers | Tags: , , , , |

Have you ever wondered how long a gummy worm can really be stretched?  Did you know that a gummy worm can grow if you put it in water?  Do you know how many pennies a gummy worm can hold up under? Well gummy worms are great to explore this and other measurement topics (width, length, weight, volume) as well as to graph the data that is collected.  These activities allow your students to hypothesize, experiment, observe,  analyze and interpret data and have FUN the whole while doing it!  Here are some links to get you started:
