Students are assigned to teams/ groups and compete to see which team can work together to build the tallest self-supporting tower.
This activity prepares students for real world situations where they must work with others. This activity also puts students in a situation where they must account for unforeseen circumstances (provided by the teacher), which require them to think and problem solve quickly. This activity is fun and often comical for students and the teacher. This activity works great in both a SPED or GEN-ED setting.
