Newspaper Tower Challenge

Team 17 had a surprise team challenge today. Using newspapers they built towers, each team trying to build the highest. Silver Stars tower won at 220cm. How high is that in metres?
Everyone was having lots of fun and teams worked well together.

  1. Hey guys! This looks like a fun activity that must have needed quite a lot of discussion and listening to others' ideas... Your towers are excellent. I would like to see a shot of each finished tower.Well done Silver Stars! 2.2m is taller than all the adults I know!

  2. Well done sliverstars.

  3. I have to say that 2.2 meters for this activity is pretty wonderful. We've done something similar with straws but we didn't get higher than a meter so I may well get our students to do this next term and then compare the results with your students. Whoever chose the music for the slideshow did a good job too the frantic music made the task seem very exciting.
