This activity went well in the classroom. We anticipated the lesson to take 60 minutes, but it took longer. We were only able to finish testing the columns without the straws in class and the teacher finished the end of the lesson without us. This activity was grade level appropriate. Be aware that many students were very excited when receiving the play dough and had trouble concentrating on the task. Many of the kids asked about making multiple columns or using multiple straws in their columns. These would be good areas to explore if there is extra time. If not, they can be discussed in class.
