Saving Fred is a creative problem-solving activity using a gummy worm, life saver, a cup, and some paperclips.
We paired up with students from 3rd and 4th grades to test our life-saving skills.
The great news was that we came up with loads of different methods to save Fred.
Remarkably, some of the groups came up with a process within minutes.
The goal was to find a few ways to do so. Everyone was able to find at least two ways.
Which means, lots of Freds got to carrying on with their boating excursions.
