Packing Peanuts STEM

Our new Reading theme is Creative Ideas and we started off our unit by talking about inventors and how they have to problem solve when creating their inventions.  We tested this by seeing who could create the tallest packing peanut structure in the time limit.  We had previously discovered that the packing peanuts we used were actually made of potato starch so we could use the "lick-and-stick" method to build!  (STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering and Math)
