Product Description
This lesson is compatible with the NGSS* Kindergarten through Second Grade Engineering, Technology and Applications of Science Standard K-2-ETS1-1. The standard expects that students will “[a]sk questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.”

This lesson teaches students about engineering and physics by examining the basic structure of all bridges. They will then examine a truss beam bridge in detail. The students will learn that triangles are very strong shapes and that engineers use them in many man-made structures, such as truss bridges. They will apply their knowledge by building their own truss bridge and test its strength against a bridge without a truss.

Here is what’s included in the 43-page lesson:

**I have added a Bridge Design Challenge to this lesson. Students will compete to see who can design a bridge that will hold the most rocks without collapsing!**
