The Name Game system was a way to meet our classmates. Each person interviewed another on one side of the room. The people on one side of the table moved their seats while the other people didn’t move. We had to write three facts about each student we interviewed and had to draw a picture of them every third person. We got to meet and share details with most of our classmates. The problem with the system was that we didn’t get to meet the students that were sitting down if we were sitting down or didn’t meet the students that were moving from seat to seat if we were moving also. The system was modified when the teacher told us we could interview anyone we want. Through this, all of the kids met each other. The Name Game

The challenge was to build the tallest free standing tower with Spaghetti noodles, masking tape, and string. At the top of the tower, we had to put a marshmallow and risk it toppling. We had to stop building after 18 minutes. At first, our group decided to build the tower and put the marshmallow on top with flimsy noodles at the platform. When we the marshmallow was put on top, the whole tower fell with 10 minutes remaining. The Marshmellow Challenge
