Aligned to the Michigan GLCES for 7th Grade, students will participate in a bridge building activity that goes through the 6 steps of the scientific method. The goal of the activity is for students to build a bridge that will be the strongest out of 100 toothpicks and Elmer's Glue.
Step Two - Students will learn how to research and use a research recorder to research the different types of bridges. Students will also write a paragraph that includes the type of bridge the student thinks will be the best choice and three reasons based on research.
