Bridge Building

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Students have been actively engaged as engineers building Popsicle bridges.  On Monday, we started off as a grade level watching videos on different types of bridges and brainstorming materials bridges were made of.  After that, students returned to the classrooms where I provided them with further information to help them understand the different parts of bridges, what bridges are used for, and examples of bridges with an example of a Popsicle bridge to match the real one.  After that, I divided students into groups where they began the process of planning the type of bridge they wanted to build, giving it a name, and sketching out how it should look when it is done.  I've attached pictures below of their work on Monday and Tuesday.  I will update this post with pictures from today, Thursday, and Friday morning as I take them. 

Parents, don't forget Bridge Presentations are Friday afternoon from 2:00-2:45.  We look forward to showing off the awesome bridges your Engineer is creating!
