The Great Pumpkin Challenge!

For the week of Halloween, I had my 4th and 5th graders do a fun design challenge. I adapted this idea from an idea I saw on Pinterest. They had 26 gum drop pumpkins and 30 toothpicks. They had to sketch a tower that would stand on its own. Then, they constructed with their materials. The tallest tower won the challenge. We had some very interesting design ideas and the students learned alot! The tallest tower was 37 centimeters tall! Here are some examples:
