Spaghetti Towers

Sequencing cards for spaghetti.

Sequencing cards for spaghetti.

After exploring the properties of cooked spaghetti the Year 1 / 2 classes investigated uncooked spaghetti. By building spaghetti towers they identified lots of differences between cooked and uncooked spaghetti. It is hard, thin, solid, has little flexibility and breaks easily but will make tall towers when handled carefully! They also recognised that once cooked spaghetti can not go back to how it began before cooking.
