Tower Building in K and 1

The kindergarten and first grade worked on their first design challenge of the school year this week.  They spent the first 2 weeks of school practicing different building techniques and learning about what materials are good for different building tasks.  The challenge was, using cardboard, Legos, cups, and blocks, build the tallest tower you can.  They used the design cycle to come up with a plan to work off of first.  After, completing the tower, they redesigned to see if they could make it even taller.  So many Stemmy elements in one lesson!
