It’s great to see students taking up the Tall Tower Challenge at home! We are impressed to see all the different materials students are exploring to make towers. This is a great opportunity to use our creativity, practice problem solving, and use math language too!
We are excited to share our creations! Please click on each picture to read about our ideas:
"My tower is bigger than me! I use Megablocks! My tower is strong, it cannot fall down, because at the bottom it's very large. At the very top, my tower is pointy. In the middle, my tower is square." -Raphael

"I use cleaning up boxes. It's the same like my train set. The box of chocolates is short." -Gabriel

I do it with a pillow and my favourtie teddy bear. When i don't hold it, it's going to fall off! It looks like it's a little bit taller than me!
If you are inspired by your classmates and want to do the Tall Tower Challenge too, just email me a photo and I will add it to our blog!
