Last week for our PAT time, the kids did the Marshmello Challenge.
Each group was given
20 spaghetti noodles
1 yard of masking tape
1 yard of string
and one marshmello
Their challenge was to create the tallest free-standing structure using only those materials
...in 20 minutes!
The marshmello had to be on top of their structure intact.
I took videos, but they all came out sideways and I could not rotate them.
(Lesson learned with video on my iPad.)
Afterwards, I had them write post-its with what they liked about the activity,
and what they found the most challenging.
Their limited supplies were their biggest challenge.
They really had fun and worked well together.
Only one team was able to make a structure that held up the marshmello and stood on its own,
but a couple others were close.
