This week, we are having a bridge building day at school!
We will be designing, making, testing and evaluating our bridges.
First, you will need to design your bridge. We will have a budget to build our bridge and pupils will be able to ‘buy’ the materials they will need to build their bridge.
Once you have designed your bridge you will need to make your bridge then test it following the attached criteria. Full instructions are given below.
Finally, you will need to evaluate your bridge using the attached sheet.
Please do send us a photo of your finished bridge.
Please continue to work on your nature journal.
