Materials List: And the Award Goes to…

Each group needs (give groups unlimited access to each, but they will not be using all materials at once. These are suggestions):

  • A variety of materials for students to build their structure with:
    • cardboard
    • construction paper
    • felt
    • toilet paper or paper towel rolls
    • a variety of consumable recycled materials
  • different kinds of tape (Scotch, duct, painters)
  • glue
  • Popsicle sticks
  • a ruler
  • Design a Structure Worksheet

For the entire class to share:

  • poster paper
  • markers
  • a circular medal (preferably similar in size to the Nobel Prize—about 200 g and a diameter of 66 mm) or an item that will serve as a proxy: a roll of coins, a small weight, etc.
