Challenge your students to work together to build a tower using only newspaper! This engaging task is perfect for the beginning of the year as it encourages collaboration and discussion while teams work through the challenge. Students will begin by planning and building their tower using only newspaper. Then students will be able to use one additional supply to make their tower better. What will that supply be? The choice is theirs but teams must reach consensus on their additional supply and explain why the supply will help to improve their design. After the groups have finished, use the included statements to have a classroom gallery walk and uncover great lessons and advice to post around your room. This task is perfect for team building and setting students up for success with whole group and individual STEM challenges.
