"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12


Today we are going to complete a STEM activity to test the strength of towers.


WALT: make predictions.


Can you watch the beginning of the video but pause it, before you test the strength of your towers. 


Year 1 - Before you start to test the strength of your towers, tell your grown up what you think is going to happen? We call this making a prediction. 


 Which shaped tower do you think will be the strongest?



Year 2 - Before you start to test the strength of your towers, please talk about your ideas with a grown up and then, write your own prediction. Which shape do you think will be the strongest and why?


Now, watch the rest of the video and test your towers. 


Was your prediction correct? Yes or No? 


What would you do differently next time? 


Do you think your results would change if you used a different type of paper or a different sized piece of paper?


I'd love to see a picture of your experiment and hear how successful you were!
