We have weeks of state testing this year. To help my kids to stay focused and motivated, we are doing STEM activities in the afternoons. Today, our challenge was to see which group could make the longest paper chain using only 1 piece of construction paper and about 12-14 inches of tape. The students jumped right in and started creating.
After 20 minutes, we compared the lengths of each paper chain. The green chain is actually folded in half! The kids had a great time working together!
