Building bridges

What does it take to make a strong bridge?

Year 1 started the year with a full day of investigating ways to make a bridge strong enough to hold a weighted item.

We used construction toys to see if we could get from one side of the table to the other. After this the children investigated ways to change the properties of paper. They had to fold, bend, twist and scrunch to see how their paper bridge could be made stronger.
