Tall Towers!

In order to build a tall tower, there are certain things you need to know.  Get some knowledge below and then start building!  If you don't have the exact same pieces as in the worksheets don't worry.  Combine LEGO bricks or come up with your own ideas.

The Challenge

Your challenge is to build a tall and strong tower by using the concepts you learned about strong joints, strong shapes and columns.

The Rules

Challenge 1 - Build a LEGO tower as tall as your hand. Put a book on top and see if it still stands.  Your tower cannot break. Not even a single piece can come off!

Challenge 2 - Build a LEGO tower as tall as your arm. Put 2 books on top and see if it still stands.  Your tower cannot break.  Not even a single piece can come off!

Ultimate Challenge - Build a LEGO tower as tall as you!  Try putting as many books on top as you can, but start with one book first and add 1 book at a time.  Your tower cannot break.  Not even a single piece can come off!
