Club Activity Idea! 7 Sheets of Paper in 7 Minutes

Who: The participants at your table.

What? Utilize the 7 sheets of paper in front of you to create the highest standing structure possible. 

How? Start by discussing your strategy. Then manipulate the paper and start building a tower. Use trial and error to refine your approach. After 7 minutes are up, choose a spokesperson to talk about your strategy.

Then: A representative from your table will present what you did to achieve your structure. 

Targets: Icebreaker/relationship skills. After school groups: develop relationship skills/leadership skills/STEM skills.
