The children will use toothpicks and marshmallows to build their own structures that can withstand the wolf’s blow. They will then draw their structure and predict by writing or drawing whether or not it will stay standing. They will identify and record the shapes they see in their structures and determine the quantity of each shape. The children will not only be predicting what they think might happen to their structure, but they will also be recording the results and why they thought it fell or not.

### Standards

Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three-sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes.
Compose two-dimensional shapes (rectangles, squares, trapezoids, triangles, half-circles, and quarter-circles) or three-dimensional shapes (cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, and right circular cylinders) to create a composite shape, and compose new shapes from the composite shape.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
