In science we have been learning about the human body. This week we have been exploring skeletons.
We started with a quiz to discover what we already knew about skeletons (A LOT!) before our STEM challenge. Our challenge was to create the tallest structure possible to hold an apple at the top. The twist was we could only use paper and cellotape!
We used lots of different methods to create our structures but found a wide solid base worked best and rolling paper into tubes to create height the most effective methods.
We compared our structures with a human skeleton to see if there were any comparisons. We saw that the paper rolled into tubes was a lot like our bones and that our legs and feet provide a solid base to support our height.
