Stretchy Snake Experiment and Craftivity


This activity pack will have your Year One’s stretching lolly snakes as far as they can to observe how they changed when manipulated in this way. There are 2 different versions of this experiment for you to complete. The first asks students to stretch and compare three different brands of lolly snake. The second asks students to consider what happens when water is brushed on the snake or when the snake is heated by the sun? Does that make a difference in how far they can stretch?  

Students will work through their science experiment making predictions, making, and recording observations and engaging with hands on experiments. Once the experiment is complete, students can use cutting and design to create a curly wurly snake to hang with their experiment observations.


A great resource pack for displaying work around the classroom.
