Tower Building

We've been learning A LOT about solids.  The kids have been working with solids and discussing their properties.

On Friday, they were given a challenge.  They were given a piece of cardboard, rubber bands, straws, tinfoil, and other objects that were in baggies.  Working with a buddy, they had to build a tower.

Here are some examples.  I had to give some clues on how to use the rubber bands and tinfoil.  Some groups were able to build a free standing tower!!
