As we are continuously working on our counting skills throughout the school year, I have to come up with new center ideas pretty frequently. I made up these Build a Tower! worksheets after watching students build all kinds of towers using different materials. I have seen similar tower building math center ideas on Pinterest, but I like having colourful worksheets for the children to work on, especially when they are going to be used over and over again (I am a frequent visitor to the laminator- I make a lot of centers and they get a lot of use, I want them to last year after year).
These worksheets are simple. Each sheet has nine squares on it, and each square has a number in it. The task is to build towers on each square using the number of blocks (or unifix cubes, Lego, Megablocks, Duplo… anything that can make a tower) indicated by the number.
