Midweek Challenge: Straw Towers!

osc28We 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.
