Today’s challenge will require some engineer skills. Put your thinking cap on and let’s go.
We are building a bridge. A strong bridge!
To start, I’ve used some painter’s tape to draw a “river”on the floor. The kids had to build a bridge that could theoretically bring a car from one side of the river to the other. No part of the bridge is allowed to touch the floor between the two strips of tape. Some of our bridges were close to touching, but never actually did.
It had to be wide enough to hold a book. The books will then be used to add weights to it. We will establish who’s bridge is the strongest by how much weight it can carry without breaking.
Take a look at what we’ve created.
And the results are in…here is the challenge winner in my home!
Now it’s your turn to give it a try.
Get creative and build a bridge that will support a maximum amount of weight.
