Christmas Cookie Mystery – Science investigation

Mrs. Claus needs your help! Each Christmas, Mrs. Claus makes a batch of her special sugar cookies to give Santa all the energy he needs to deliver presents to all the good little boys and girls around the world. A bad little elf has snuck into the kitchen and messed up all the special baking powders. Students need to find out the which of the powders is the cookie mix! I was given this resource at an NQT conference and thought I would share it.

Strap in to your spin-chariot and prepare your body and mind for the ultimate “DIGITAL CIRCLE SPORT” experience.

This app is great for tutor time competition. Can be played individually or in small teams. A great way to get students alert in the morning and engage students during tutor time. Mirroring the iPad using Apple TV can share the screen with all members of the group. Or, mirror using Reflector to have multiple screens mirrored at the same time.
