Ferguson K – 8
Project builds PRIDE in Spanish class at Ferguson
Students were given 20 sticks of spaghetti, a yard of tape, a yard of string, and a big marshmallow.
Their challenge was to work together as a team demonstrating PRIDE. The winning team was the one that built the tallest freestanding structure measured from the table top surface to the top of the marshmallow.
One group of 7th grade boys successfully built a tower that supported the marshmallow 52 centimeters from the top of the desk!
It was great to see so many teams thinking critically, collaborating, and communicating well to successfully complete the challenge!
