Product Description
Can you build a bridge with only a few supplies? Yes, you can! My students love building bridges as much as towers. We push tables close together to make the gap we are bridging and set to work with simple materials and one goal in mind. Build a bridge that will cross the gap and work!

Please note: This package contains three lessons. Each may be purchased separately.

In Bridges with Index Cards students build simple platform bridges using index cards as the only supply. The final platform must hold weight. It’s a simple task with endless creative ways to fold and manipulate the paper.

In Bridges with Marshmallows some materials are added- toothpicks and marshmallows. Students build a bridge to span a gap and hold weights. The design is a little more difficult than the index card design bridge. The materials are more difficult to manipulate and students will need to connect two items to create the greatest strength. Also, recently added: This challenge now includes ten more pages of teacher directions with hints, lab sheets, constraints, and photos. And, rubrics for everything!

In Bridges with Straws the materials include paper clips, string, straws, and toothpicks. The designs will be more elaborate. Kids may be exploring creating joints and connecting the materials in unique ways. The final designs might even resemble real bridges! UPDATE This challenge now includes a second version for use. I added materials and prep, teacher directions, photos, and more for this new version.

You will need additional materials for use of these packages. This includes index cards, toothpicks, marshmallows, string, straws, paper clips, scissors, bowls or paper plates, and weights (like pennies).

The packages specifically contain: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, 2-3 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures, Extensions page, 1-2 Helpful Hints pages, 2 sets of Lab sheets with sample answers, Photo pages, and Credits page. All three challenges also now have rubrics and editable forms.

If you prefer these sets may be purchased separately:
Bridges with Index Cards!
Bridges with Straws
Bridges with Marshmallows
