STEM in 1st Grade with Mrs. Altman Today we wrapped up our story Building a House by doing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activity where teams had to build a jelly bean tower. Each team had to build a tower using only jelly beans and toothpicks. They had a set amount of time to build and then they measured their towers. The teams discussed having to build a base to support their tower and measures that would allow their towers to be supported as they got taller. After recording the results, all team members got to eat a jelly bean of course!
