Jelly Bean Towers

Jelly Bean Towers?  What a cool idea!  I saw Ari's towers the other week, and I decided it was the perfect way to wrap up the last day before Spring Break.  We work with our 1st grade Reading Buddies on a weekly basis, and they love doing engineering projects together.  

Here is some of what our kids created:

The kids had the challenge of using 10 jelly beans and 10 toothpicks to create the tallest tower.  

When done, the kids practiced measuring to the nearest inch and centimeter.  

I was so proud of them!  Our tallest tower turned out to be 14 inches.  Wow!
