This Safe Crossings activity & project also includes:
Learners join a task force and learn, “It’s a tool not a toy”, and “safety first,” in this worthwhile geometry task where they are asked to collaboratively construct the plans for a pedestrian bridge that connects two walkways over a busy highway. The task suggests providing a compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, and, dynamic geometric software for your engineers to construct parallel and perpendicular lines.
- Pictures of suggested solutions are included in the plan
- An opportunity for learners to practice many standards.
