Product Description
Can you build a tower using only a dozen of each supply? What if there are only two materials? How tall can you build the tower? So much fun!

Note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles!
Dozens Bundle
6-Pack Bundle featuring Easy Supplies

This tower uses one dozen inches of tape and only 12 inches of the main material! That’s why it is called a Designing with Dozens task! Students will follow the steps of the Engineering Design Process in this challenge and it is fascinating to watch as they plan and then begin construction. The constant need for improving the tower to keep it standing goes hand-in-hand with using the supplies wisely and understanding balancing and counter balancing. Will the tower stand up? What height will the tallest tower be? How will you create a base? This challenge presents great ways to collaborate, but can be completed individually!

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 with sample answers, and a scoring rubric. All forms are provided in an editable file!

This challenge works great with two more challenges that use a dozen as the amount of materials:
12 Cards Towers
12 Straws Towers
