Year 6 Tower Challenge

As part of our independent experiments unit, the children were given the challenge to build secure sky scrapers using only spaghetti and marshmallows. We began by looking at different towers from around the world and children discuss where and why particular shapes are used in specific environments. They then went on to use this knowledge to design, build and evaluate their own constructions. This challenge linked science, design and technology and mathematics as children use problem-solving strategies.
