Small Bears Need Tall Towers

If you are a very small bear and you want to look a long way the best thing to do is get up high in the air. The children were challenged to create a structure so that the bear could see into the distance. They could use branches and sticks they’d found in the woods. The highest tower would be the winner. Working in teams they tried all sorts of ideas out, stacking and sticking, layering and wedging in, how would you make your tower robust but tall? not as easy as it looks.
