We have been building different types of bridges from equipment in our classroom.
Georgia and I built a bridge. We made a suspension bridge. It had three supports on the bottom. We used cellotape, a bit of string, cardboard and two blocks. It took awhile cellotaping the string on because it kept on moving. I think me and Georgia worked as a team. The bridge was strong. I like to build bridges.
My bridge is a bascule bridge. Bridges have supports to hold the bridge up so that cars, trucks, and people can go on it. A bascule bridge opens in half to let boats go through.
Yesterday me, Phillip and Ryan built a bridge. It was a beam bridge. It was so hard because the supports kept falling.
