Card Game Friday – Card Tower

We built Card Towers on Friday! We looked at different pictures of card towers and watched this video to get some inspiration and ideas.

Before we started building, we remembered what Mojo said about making mistakes and the power of yet! Once we got building, some of us found it easy, but some of us found it challenging too. As we started building, all the other concepts we’re learning in Math about shapes and in Science about friction kept popping up! Many of them started migrating to the carpet because they said “there’s more friction on the carpet than on this slippery floor!” Others were still determined to build their card tower without friction on their side. Overall the class did an incredible job of trying their best, keeping their frustration levels at bay and remembering their class promise of not giving up!
