5th Grade: Marshmallow Challenge

Mrs. Lucero's class took a brain break from TCAP testing to complete the Marshmallow Challenge.  In groups of three, students had to take 20 spaghetti sticks, a yard of string and tape, and transform them into the tallest tower possible.  Not all towers were tall on the first try, but each group got a chance to improve their design on the second try.  Some groups tripled their height and even built a tower 31 inches tall.
