On Friday, November 3rd, Mrs. Brunt's class earned a class compliment party. We decided to have a straw tower building contest. In teams of 5, students had the task of building the tallest, free standing structure using straws and connectors. It was a very close race and the students learned that a large, solid base and teamwork were very important in being successful. These third graders had fun and are looking forward to the next challenge.
