Notes for Session 2, Part C

Note 5

If you are working in groups to build your structures, at the end of 10 minutes, measure your structure, and then compare the structures built by the different groups. Consider the following questions:


For the tallest structures in the room, what kinds of strategies did the creators use?


What kinds of structures had trouble standing up? Which ones were stronger?


What kinds of shapes were stronger in keeping the buildings up? Can you explain why?
