Newspaper Chains

Can you build a chain out of newspaper that is strong enough to hold a bucket of water?  Our 4th graders did just that this week in STEM lab.  The chain needed to be 4 links long and could not be attached to the bucket.  You could only use one sheet of newspaper to make this happen.  All the students had to really use the design cycle plan, build, test, while working on this task.  Many failed at their first several attempts, but showed resilience and didn’t give up!
