The Marshmallow Challenge

On Monday, the 4th and 5th Grade students (4年生・5年生) did the “Marshmallow Challenge”.  Students were given 20 sticks of spaghetti, 1m of tape and 1m of string, and had to build the highest tower they could with the marshmallow at the top.  They were given only 20 minutes to complete the challenge.

Although this task involves scientific and mathematical skills, the most important skill is communication.  Every student has different strengths, but they must all work together to finish the task.

The highest tower in the 4th grade was 66cm.
The highest tower in the 5th grade was 80cm.
