    Great activity, especially, because it hardly requires anything. The lessons learnt:
    – Prototyping as you build like children;
    – Don’t over engineer;
    – Don’t presume it is difficult;
    – Ingenuity

    Could be used as one of the early activity in the programme.

    Just done it today with 4 primary students. They needed assistance with the communication skills (which is what we’re working on) but I really was amazed with the ideas they managed to come up with. I reduced the materials to 10 pieces of paper only but they still managed to utilise a full 20 minutes. The best bit was the joy shown by their achievement….winning!!

      This is terrific news Gwynneth, thanks for sharing. Out of interest, how old were the students? What lessons did they take-away from their experience?

    We sometimes use the variations of
    – straws and stickytape – limiting the amount of each to extend the group
    – spaghetti and marshmallows – also limited amounts, can be quite entertaining (and a bit sticky!) and remember to bring a bag of marshmallows to eat afterwards!
