Spaghetti and Marshmallows: Our 1st Day Challenge

In order to build a community of learners who listen to one another, work collaboratively to problem solve and who respect one another, we completed a challenge. Our challenge was to take 20 pieces of uncooked spaghetti, 1 jumbo marshmallow, 1 yard of masking tape, and 1 yard of string to construct the tallest tower that could hold the marshmallow on top and still stand upright. We had 18 minutes to complete this task with our teams. Check out the photos below to see how well we did.

The tallest tower was 14 1/2 inches tall. All of us did a great job working together and communicating with one another. We all agree that this is going to be one amazing year. We can't wait for our next challenge.
