Product Description
Let the kids play with gumdrops to build a structure with toothpicks, that will hold a book. I include in this file a through teacher's guide to show how this activity can be used with kindergartners all the way up to high school at varying levels of inquiry.

This file includes 2 pages of teacher instructions, a student handout for K-3, and a handout for 4-12.

Materials needed for this activity; per student or pair of students; 20 toothpicks and 10 gumdrops, with a paper plate as a work surface.

I've done this activity with little ones and with teachers at professional development workshops. Its up to you what parameters you put on the students. The more parameters, the more difficult the challenge. Want to make it even more challenging? Add a time limit, or assign material "costs."

Would love your feedback on this engineering activity.
