Tower Team Building Activity

I recently led a team building activity that was really a lot of fun–spaghetti and gum drop tower building. The object of the activity is to work as a team to build the highest tower in the set amount of time. This activity is not only easy to prep, but also fairly inexpensive to put together.


  • Build the highest tower through cooperation and teamwork

Time frame: Directions 5 minutes; building 15 minutes; measuring 10 minutes


  • 40 gum drops
  • 1 box spaghetti
  • 1 piece of paper/pen for drawing

    What do you have them win? Sounds like a great team building lesson. Great idea.

      Depends on the class and what motivates them…extra credit points, a pan of brownies, etc.
