Cross That Bridge

Students create paper bridges. For this geometry and architecture lesson, groups use legal paper and paper clips to design a bridge that will hold 100 pennies. Links to mini-lessons exploring stability of different geometric figures and bridge design help guide students to a successful outcome. A video of a bridge collapse is included for a real life connection.
