Last Thursday we had a discovery afternoon. Miss Downes challenged us to make a tower out of marshmallows, pasta, 2 plastic cups, straws, cellotape, string, tooth picks and newspaper. The tower had to be strong enough to hold an egg. The team with the highest tower won.
We worked in small groups and had to plan what our tower would look like. Once we had finished our plan we worked together to build our tower. While we were building our towers we realised that we needed to change our plan because our towers were not going to be strong enough.
We all had a great time problem solving.
Well done to the winning team: Sam , Cade, Okashah, and Bella.
Here are a few photos we would like to share with you.
