This is an outstanding website for students to learn all about structures, from skyscrapers to bridges. It covers the new vocabulary that students need to learn to fulfill the science standards. The Guided Reading worksheets help students navigate through the site to read carefully for important information. There are two writing lessons where students show they can
“synthesize” their information. I have attached these “Labs” to students’ Science Notebooks. Using technology is another “information” source for students to learn about structures, in addition to reading books and building with a variety of materials in the classroom to “test” what they have learned.
