Product Description
Our STEM Challenge about Building a Bridge (with marshmallows) has been a kid-favorite for several years. Kids love the simple materials and the task of making this one work. The bridges are not very long but will test the patience and diligence of students as they work to finish this successfully. And, they will! Great cheering will happen when a bridge spans the gap and holds a little bit of weight!

Please note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles!

The design challenge lesson contained in this package is a bridge building experience. Students will use toothpicks and marshmallows to construct a bridge. They will test the strength of their final designs by adding weights to the structures.

The package includes step-by-step instructions with many hints along the way. One page gives you a materials list and advance preparation steps. Included is a page of possible ways to extend this activity beyond its basic one day use. A page of helpful hints will give you some useful ideas! A page of actual photos of student work is included!

★You will need supplies in addition to this package. This includes toothpicks, marshmallows, paper plates or bowls, and weights (like pennies).

The package specifically contains pages for Teacher background, materials and preparations, 2 pages of step by step procedures, extension ideas, 2 pages of helpful hints, 3 pages of photographs, and two versions of lab sheets with sample answers provided. In addition a second version of the challenge that uses a blueprint is included. This file contains teacher directions, hints, photos, lab sheets and constraints. Another file contains scoring rubrics for all the versions of this challenge. And, another file contains editable forms! Amazing collection! The total page count listed includes everything.
