When we have a full week of classes our block schedule runs A, B, A, B, Traditional, so today I saw all of my students. Each class is 41 minutes–just enough time to conduct the marshmallow challenge.
The challenge is a great activity to promote team building and collaboration. Students can use up to 20 spaghetti sticks, 1 yard of string and masking tape and 1 marshmallow mounted at the top. As one would expect some groups collaborated well and a few students were not fully engaged.
Here are the tallest structures from each class.
