Design Squad-Paper Table!

Create your own video slideshow at

The challenge in this design squad activity was to see if the kids could figure out ways to use tubes of newspaper to make a table that is at least 8 inches tall, and strong enough to hold a heavy book. This activity called for a lot of trial and error, but once the kids were able to figure out ways to make a paper table that was tall enough and strong enough, the challenge was on! Eventually, it became a competition to see who could make the strongest table, and whose table could withstand the most amount of weight without tumbling over.

I love it! I can see your progress in the Animoto video! I'd love to see more Animoto videos...or even your use of using the Flip video! Way to go, MTU! ...and thanks for sharing!
