Description

Get your students moving, building, thinking and collaborating with this fun and intuitive activity. While they are racing against the clock to build the tallest cup tower, you are evaluating their strengths and interpersonal skills.

Finish this engaging activity with a feedback session where students tell you what they observed from their experience. This activity provides a great build up to setting high expectations for the entire year.

Mix it up for a project-based learning #PBL activity!

You have already purchased the cups, now have students create exhibits using their building materials. Students can create a themed building, upload a picture to a collaborative Google Slide presentation and design the slide to represent a campaign. Each group can pitch their idea to the class.

Great for an icebreaker, a first day of school activity, or even an end of the year bridge building activity. Students will remember this one!
