Problem Solving Challenge: Popsicle Stick Towers

on April 6, 2018

Today we were given the problem-solving challenge:

Build the tallest tower that can stand alone using 20 popsicle sticks and any other material you can find in our classroom. 

First, we split ourselves into teams. Then we got to work. Some teams did a great job planning out how to make the tallest structure, Ms. Edwards observed many problem-solving phrases from students in our class, including “if it’s too heavy at the top, it will fall down…” and “liquid glue won’t dry in time…let’s use tape.”

With only 30 minutes to work, we ended up with some cool and creative towers and even better problem solving and collaborating skills!
