Help Save Fred Stem Supplies

This back to school activity elementary is super affordable.  You can find all the items on Amazon or at your local dollar store!  So, the supplies you need are 5 oz plastic cups (clear), 2 jumbo paper clips (per person), peach rings or lifesavers, gummy worms or Trolli Sour Brite crawlers.  I have 18 students in my classroom this year. This activity was perfect as the first day of school activities elementary! However, I could totally see it working well as first day activities for high school students also!  I paired students with a partner and so they were in groups of 2. So, I used one pack of cups, 2 packs of peach rings, and Trolli Sour Brite crawlers. After the save Fred activity was over, students were able to enjoy the peach ring and gummy work.
