This is a great 2 part lesson on beam bridges. Students first test out materials to make girders, then build a bridge using the girders. Students will use the Engineer Desing Process to feel like real engineers.
Includes a video link and printables.
6 empty toilet paper or paper towel tubes
Large container to test in
Prediction sheet (included)
Materials for bridge (per group)
Cardboard or cardstock
Happy Engineering :)
