Provide all thenecessary materials; use your vision; be creative, e.g., popsicle sticks orpencils, paper clips, gum, glue, tape, paper, plastic, carpet, etc. Place allthe materials on a table and have each team select the items they needto build the house. Allow 20 minutes to complete the house. Determinewhich completed house can withstand water damage by using acontained “water bucket dump” environment.
