Think of some of the most beautiful structures in the world: The Eiffel Tower, The Space Needle, The Shard, The Oriental Pearl Tower, The Chrysler Building and many more. There are towers all over the world. Towers are a marvel of math, science and engineering.
This product begins with a short blurb about why use STEAM at all. Then I review the NGSS standards this addresses and for which grades (2-5). Finally I review the activities. I made two student sheets for the spaghetti tower challenge: use the colorful version for projecting and the B&W sheets for the kids.
Have a great time making the tallest spaghetti towers!
