Goal: Build the highest newspaper tower as possible.

Preparation:
- At least 4 - 5 stacks of newspapers
- 5 rolls of masking tape
- Measuring tape

How to Play The Build Tower Game:
1. Split everyone into teams of five. Hand each group a stack of newspapers and a roll of masking tape.

2.Explain the game: The object of the game is to build the highest newspaper tower, using only the newspaper and masking tape. The teams will be given a couple of minutes to strategize.

3. Give the groups about 15 minutes or more. Measure how high each team’s newspaper tower is. The team with the highest tower wins the game.

Variation:
- Instead of building the highest tower, ask teams to build the strongest bridge using masking tape and newspapers. For this, you’ll need to have about a dozen pop cans. At the end, place pop cans one by one on top of the bridge. The team whose bridge can hold the most pop cans wins the game.

Special Rule: A pop can must be able to roll through the base of the bridge.
