Tower Building

This week we finished up with Solids.

Our last experiment was building a tower.  The catch...no tape or glue could be used.  OH MY!!

Here are the materials they had:

Piece of Cardboard
Popsicle Stick
Tin Foil

They worked with a partner and planned how they'd build their tower. I gave NO hints or answers and told them there wasn't a correct answer.  The only rule was their tower had to be free standing.

Here they are working.

After the towers were built, we measured to see which tower was the tallest.  They also drew a digram and labeled it.
