INTEGRATE STEM IN YOUR CLASSROOM!
Get your students learning about bridges and engaging in STEM! Students will design a bridge using only one material...index cards!
Students plan, design, and execute their own ideas for creating a bridge. After they have completed their activity, there is time for reflection on what worked and what didn't.
This activity is an excellent STEM Center or as a whole classroom experience. It aligns with the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
