Spaghetti Tower Challenge

In the first week of April, students in second and third grades completed the Spaghetti Tower Challenge with the help of Mrs. Adams, Mr. Cervenka, and Mrs. Wiesler.

Students worked in groups and were provided with a box of uncooked noodles, one large marshmallow, and a roll of masking tape.  The challenge was to build the tallest tower possible that could hold up the marshmallow.

Students worked for approximately 20 minutes and then towers were measured.  The second grade winning team had a tower that was 21 inches tall!  We then talked about what worked and what didn’t work within their teams.  Universally, ALL students thought they would be able to make better towers with more… TIME!
