Students will construct a Paper Tower using the concept of a "Post and Lintel" structure. Students will pair up and build a tower using two different types of "Posts" (Rectangular and Cylinder) and their math textbook as the "Lintel."
Students will find the Area and Surface Area of the two basic shapes: Rectangle (Rectangular) and Circle (Cylinder), respectively. They will analyze these basic shapes by understanding the basic fundamental components of how a building is made. Students will become familiar with the terms Compression, Tension, Post, Lintel, Area, and Surface Area.
