Day 14 - Marshmallow Structure

My teaching partner and I saw a super cute end of the year activity on Pinterest. You fill balloons with fun activities for a length of time, we chose the month of May since we get out on the 23rd, and each day your class pops one and does the activity inside. I thought I would write each day about the activity that got "popped." We explained to them that if they were below Green (Ready to Learn) on the clip chart, then they wouldn't be able to participate. Once everyone understood the expectations we were ready to pop...

So today the kiddo's got to build Marshmallow Structures in teams of 5.  Then we walked around and looked at everyone's masterpieces.  Jill and I had close to 1,000 toothpicks and still is wasn't enough!  The kids had a great time and got really creative.  When we were done, they were able to share the structures with their teams so that everyone could take some of it home.
