Creativity Brought to You by Year 5/6 Students


The students were placed into groups of 4 or 5 and asked to design and make a structure using pasta and Marshmallows. This activity was fantastic with students enjoying the opportunity to collaborate with peers. The height and design of the structures were noted as criteria to determine degree of creativity and students’ demonstration of our school value of collaboration; how well students worked in a team. It was a fun and engaging way to start the onsite inquiry learning.
