Bridges

This Bridges lesson plan also includes:

Bridges are some of the most intriguing and beautiful feats of engineering constructed throughout history. Give your class the chance to challenge their design skills and understanding of structural functions as they team up to create load-bearing bridges of their own. After a discussion on bridge terms and technology, each team designs and constructs a bridge that must adhere to several design requirements and application rules. The resource provides both you and the students with examples of bridge types, vocabulary terms, and background information that will aid throughout the process.
