If you are looking for a 30 minute fun activity for today that incorporates working together, ingenuity, competition, and well - just plain fun - try the Paper Chain Challenge.
What you will need:
1 piece of construction paper (per group)
1 pair of scissors
To create the longest paper chain using only the one piece of paper - no extra paper is to be given
Have fun working together!
Many more STEM projects will be shared in the future.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
