Halloween Candy Challenge and Week Ten


This week we have two challenges:

1. If you have it, use 5 pieces of Halloween candy and 5 toothpicks and 2 straws to make an animal, real or imaginary. You may use scissors in construction but not in the solution. You may not use any other materials but you may use anything from your Halloween candy! If you don't have Halloween candy, use whatever you'd like to make an animal.

2. Put a bag of marshmallows (any size) on the table. Tell your students to big the biggest arch possible. They may use whatever they'd like during construction but the final arch must be made only of marshmallows. Wash your hands! Take pictures. Send them in.

Do one or both challenges. We'll post the pics for all of them!

For fun, learn about arches here.

I'm new here. My daughter wants to try this. "Only marshmallows"--nothing to hold them together?

Yep. She may need to support it during construction. But should be able to do it with marshmallows only (H20 is also okay).
