Building Bridges

posted in: Lesson Plans | 0


During the month of April the students completed the “bridge challenge” which was a summary of all of our learning about Structures.

IMG666They made a plan to design their own bridge, based on some samples of bridges that we had discussed in class, such as a suspension bridge.


The bridges had to span at least 30cm and hold the weight of two cars.


The students were provide with some materials and were also asked to bring in some materials from home if they chose to.


Many of them worked with their parents on the projects at home.  The final bridges were on display for our student-led conferences.


The students were very proud and excited about what they had designed and created.  All of them met the criteria too!
