1st Grade: Towers Made from Solids

During the months of October and November, 1st Graders at Columbine explored the properties of solids and liquids through their FOSS Science Kit.  In order to demonstrate their understanding of solids and their properties, students built towers from materials in the STEM Lab.  Students selected the materials they thought would build the tallest tower for their group.  1st Graders found that cardboard, straws, pipe cleaners, and cups made great materials to help them build.  It was a lot of fun and we ended up with some tall towers!
