Comment: This activity went well for us. It took approximately 60 minutes (the whole class time), which is how long we expected it to take. Our teacher was fairly involved in the activity - she walked around the classroom and helped students when needed. This activity was definitely age/grade level appropriate for the students. Most of the students enjoyed the activity and did not have much trouble figuring things out. Perhaps next time, if there was extra time, more time could have been given to the students for them to modify the bases of their support columns. Also, make sure that the students do not take apart their columns, so they can be used for the next class!
