W2 - Teamwork

This week's Kidsedchatnz is all about TEAMWORK! It is also a flipped chat where you need to complete a task and watch a video before you come to the chat.

This is how it is going to work...


Classes need to complete the following challenge in the week prior to the chat. It can be done on any day but sometime closer to Thursday's chat will work best.

The challenge is.......to build the TALLEST freestanding tower that you can!

The Rules: 

- You are only allowed to use the following materials: 1 newspaper, 10 ice-block sticks, 2 paper plates, sellotape and scissors.
- Groups of 3-5
- 30 minutes time limit
- Your tower needs to be free standing

When the time limit is up you will need to measure the height of your tower and take a photo.
