Teamwork and Persistence Through Spaghetti Towers

Yesterday, students were challenged to work in pairs to create a Spaghetti Tower.  Their goal was to build the tallest tower they could, that would hold a large campfire marshmallow for 10 seconds without toppling over.  However, they had constraints! Students were only allowed 3 feet of masking tape, a limited number of dry spaghetti noodles, and 30 minutes to complete their design. All of the second graders did a fabulous job, and every tower was able to hold the marshmallow for 10 seconds.
