Bundle Description

My students love to build towers more than anything! They are incredibly competitive in trying to make the best and tallest tower. This set gives you three towers to try and we love all of them. Just how tall will your towers be?

Please note: This package contains three lessons. Each may be purchased separately.

In Build a Tower with Spaghetti students will have spaghetti, tape, string, and one large marshmallow. The challenge is to build the highest tower possible using only those supplies. They must use the materials wisely! Also, includes pages for using this at Christmas time as a Bell Tower. This challenge also includes a version that uses a blueprint and scoring rubrics have been added.

In Build a Tower with Toothpicks students have two supplies- toothpicks and modeling clay. Again, they build the highest possible tower, using only the given supplies and a lot of creativity. It’s a super task! This challenge now includes a version that uses marshmallows and blueprints. This includes new teacher directions, hints, photos, lab sheets, and scoring rubrics.

In Build a Tower with Index Cards students have a supply of index cards and some masking tape! That’s it! How high can you build a tower with only those supplies? The thinking and variety of solutions to this task will amaze you! Also, includes pages for using at Christmas time as a Santa Tower!

★You will need additional materials for use of these packages. This includes spaghetti, masking tape, string, large marshmallows, toothpicks, modeling clay (Play-doh), index cards, scissors, and rulers.
