Third and fourth graders worked together to build a large tower of speed stacks.

The sport of cup stacking utilizes both the right and left side of the brain, and helps to improve student’s hand-eye coordination, concentration and creativity as they learn the different stack patterns.

This fine and gross motor development carries over to the classroom.

The activity was designed to foster and encourage cooperation among students.
