Today, Room 4 worked on building up our class treaty!
We did this by all participating in very amusing challenges done in groups of four. My group consisted of me, Jacob, Kristopher, and Lynette! We had so much fun during all three tasks, but had to work together as a team as well!
Below are some images and descriptions of each of the challenges that we had to do.
I hope you enjoy :))
I don’t have any pictures of the first task, but basically we had to create a bridge using paper! I think we ended up with a pretty decent-ish product, though!
For the second challenge, we had to try and build the tallest tower out of the other teams! At first, we were going to create a flat base using a group of straws, but realised soon after that it would be tricky for the actual tower to stick to a wavy platform from the straws on the bottom.
So we switched to a vertical group of straws spread sort of evenly, and then we put some tape on the sides of the base and connected it to the desks for a more stronger base. However, later into the challenge, we ended up taping a group of straws together and then placed it inside of the tape, if that makes sense.
For the tower itself though, we cut two decent sized slits on one side of a straw, and then connected another straw to it by sliding it down the two slits, and then repeated the process again and again!
At the end, we did end up having the tallest tower that was so tall, it almost touched the ceiling! It wasn’t too stable though, so it ended up tipping over slowly once I let it go. It was still very fun, though !!
The last task we did was by far the most challenging, and definitely required a lot more communication with your teammates! We had to first tie four strings that were about 9 centimetres long onto a very stretchy rubber band, and then we each had to take one piece and pull to stretch the rubber band in order for us to grab a cup and then create a tower! And we weren’t allowed to touch the cups with our hands at all, too.
We managed to finish our tower second, but I then had to go off to a Prefects meeting so I wasn’t there for the rest of the challenge however, from the picture above, I have a feeling that they just tried seeing who could build the tallest tower!
