Tower shapes and materials

Last week in Mrs. Marsh's science block, the students were challenged to make a tower that was 12 inches tall using 20 index cards and 16 paper clips.  Then they were challenged to make a tower at least 6 inches tall that would hold a hardcover book.  They are learning all about shapes, materials, and design. Students had to demonstrate the learning qualities of connecting persisting, and collaborating!
