  1. Hi guys
    You have been chosen to be the best blog post because you guys did a great reflection and it looked so fun I want to have a go myself. What tower was the most successful out of the groups?

    1. Hi Ben
      Thank you for your comment and for choosing Room 7 as having the best blog post this week!
      They loved making their towers! The most successful groups were the ones who worked together, had a strong foundation/base and thought about their design first.
