As the boys and girls have come together from 4 separate classes last year, we carried out a science activity which was also a great way of getting to know each other! We had to work in groups of 4's with 3rd and 4th class mixed together. Each group received 6 plastic cups, 4 pieces of string and one elastic band. The object was to build the cups into a pyramid....without touching the cups with your hands! There was great fun around the classroom as the groups tried to come up with ways of completing the task!
Lots of the groups succeeded and we had great fun along the way! Many thanks to Mrs O'Donovan for sharing this fantastic idea and resources with us! Why not give it a try at home? Remember you can't touch the cups!
