Design Challenge

This past Friday, we teamed up with second grade to complete our first design challenge of the year. Students were given 6 popsicle sticks, 4 index cards, 2 pieces of paper, a ruler, scissors, and 1 foot of masking tape. Their mission was to create a structure 6 inches high that could hold a Kleenex box. Many of our groups were successful and were excellent teammates!
