Grade Five Reaches New Heights

How High Can You Go?

Grade Five welcomed in the new school year by accepting the challenge of constructing towers out of only paper and tape.  Given forty minutes or so, students planned and carried out an investigation into constructing towers that were as tall as possible while maintaining stability.  Each pairing of students had different strategies for the task.

Ultimately, we had a pairing of students reach a height of 1.39 meters!
