The sky's the limit. Build a tower as high as you can using only cups.
- the ability to build a tower with them
- Build it! How high did you get your cup tower to go?
- Why do you think it went as high as it did?
- Did you remember to empty the cups first?

I used a package of 400 cups. I did it outside. Eventually. I needed a ladder to reach the top. I kept adding more on the sides and to each level so I could make it taller. When I finally couldn't reach, I found that I had used almost the whole package!
