Today we practiced spatial awareness and engineering!! We're pretty advanced first graders. We competed in a first grade competition to build a structure out of only 20 spaghetti noodles and scotch tape. Here's the catch. The structure had to hold up a marshmallow (the big ones) as high as possible. The highest marshmallow won. It was challenging. The winner came from Miss Jill's class at 21 inches. We're thinking we should try again now that we have some more ideas. On a side note...this was an AWESOME team building activity.
First we brainstormed and planned...
Then we built...
