Year 5 and year 6 we set a challenge this week, they were to try to build a stick tower as tall as they could. They could only use string to help with the construction and it had to be free standing. Everyone found this challenging in different ways. Some found collaboration and communication hard. Others found trying to make the tower free standing difficult. Everyone achieved he task and we all discovered that it really helps to work together.
It was interesting to see all the different ideas.
