Second Grade Students Take The Paper Tower Challenge

Students in Mrs. Fagan's second grade class at the Bruno M. Ponterio Ridge Street School took part in a challenge to build a tower using only paper index cards. This activity was part a regular daily time when the second grade classes do some exploratory learning using activities from the Mystery Doug science website. Students are challenged to answer everyday questions by performing activities that challenge previous knowledge and problem solving skills. Photos are below.
