The 8th grade Peer Leaders guide 6th grade through the "Tower Builder" team exercise! Students of 6-1, 6-2, and 6-3 collaborated in the planning and design and ultimately the ex*****on of building a tower made of newspaper and tape. Stduents were given time to initially strategize before being given the materials, they had 10 minutes to excute their design and problem solve and adapt along the way. Peer leaders circulated to offer advice and to oversee the building process. Winners of the tallest tower and the tower most able to withstand a moderate breeze were declared!
