Paper Suspension Bridges: You Want Me To Go Up There?

A few class periods will be required to complete this physics investigation with your high schoolers. There is an unavailable video written into the lesson plan, but there is plenty of material here to bridge the gap. Two terrific outside websites are referenced, one includes a worksheet that guides learners through the bridge design and building processes. Not only would this be applicable to your physics curriculum, it could alternately be used in a STEM situation or an engineering elective.

I have been told by seasoned educators not to "re-invent the wheel" when coming up with ideas for lessons. So true!! Lesson Planet has a wealth of sources and ideas from some of the greatest teaching minds that are out there...what a blessing to have a resource such as Lesson Planet, to turn to. I am even planning to contribute a lesson or two myself. My daughter is in a teacher education program and I have introduced her to the "Planet". We're spreading the news!
