Product Description
If you have limited supplies can you still build a tower? Yes, you can! It’s the third of three Designing with Dozens challenges! All three of the Dozens challenges use a small amount of materials and those materials are things you already have!

Note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles.

Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process in this challenge. They will also have to creatively use a limited supply of two things since they only get a dozen of each! The towers will be precarious structures and they will also have to work with balancing and counterbalancing to make the towers stand. How tall can they build? Can you make one stand more than 100 cm tall? How easily do they tumble? What on earth do you with the bendy part of the straw?

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Overview, Materials and Preparation page, 3 pages of Teacher Step-by-Step Directions, 1 page of Helpful Hints, 3 pages of photos, 2 versions of task constraints, a 1-page lab sheet with answer key, a 2-page lab sheet, and a scoring rubric. Also, all forms are provided in an editable format!

Supplies needed in addition to this package include: straws, tape, and scissors.
