Our class recently discussed various types of bridges. We chatted where we might find them and what they looked like.
We explored and researched many famous bridges throughout the world.
There are 4 many types of bridges;
A. Beam bridge
B. Arch bridge
C. Suspension or cable stayed bridge
D. Cantilever bridge
The children were divided into groups to experiment creating and designing different types of bridges. The materials used were straws, string, paper, paper clips, cubes, masking tape, glue and lollipop sticks.
The children were asked to design a bridge using various materials. Here’s some examples of what they came up with.
