Tower Building with the School Age

Tower Building (2)

For one of my Fizz Boom Read programs, I did a tower building activity. I read The Man Who Walked Between the Towers by Mordicai Gerstein. Then I setup two stations with supplies. It was really cheap and lots of fun! The only thing I needed for myself was a tape measure.

Station One: spaghetti, marshmallows, and wax paper (not pictured: I learned this after the fact! The marshmallows melt to everything, so I would recommend placing wax paper on the floor to save you from mopping!)

Station Two: straws, paper clips, scissors

Give the kids plenty of time to experiment with building. I had them form teams and go to town. Look at some of their creations!

    1. Oh, I forgot about toothpicks and gumdrops! Thanks for the ideas. I’ll add them next time!
      No, actually I told the kids to be really careful and we didn’t really have any broken spaghetti!
