Marshmallow Challenge with 7th Graders
This was my first year trying the Marshmallow Challenge with my seventh graders. I thought it would be a great way to start the second day of school.
This group activity allowed me to see who take charges in a group and who just sits back and does nothing. I am glad to say that only one student really sat back and did about nothing. I was a little disappointed that I had a few groups give up after a short amount of time.
Since this was my first time trying out the challenge and since the students are seventh graders I did allow them to tape their structure to the desk if they thought of it.
