5th Grade Engineers


Fifth grade students recently were tasked with building a freestanding tower with nothing but index cards. Their tower had to be at least 12 inches tall and hold a plastic tiger figurine for at least 30 seconds without falling. They could only fold, bend, and roll the index cards. They were not allowed to cut the index cards or use tape.

Students quickly learned that some shapes were stronger than others through their trail and error process.
