Midweek Challenge: Straw Towers!
We had a really fun Midweek Challenge on Wednesday. Students were given 10 straws and unlimited tape. Students worked with a partner to build the tallest tower they could build. Our first graders had tons of fun working together and experimenting with different approaches. It may sound like a simple challenge, but it was pretty difficult to build a tower that could stand alone. Our first graders showed a great deal of perseverance as they attacked this challenge. It was really special to see everyone working so hard, and being so supportive of each other.
