Weeks 5 and 6 Term 3 2009

Over the past few weeks we have explored the three main types of bridges - arch, suspension and beam bridge. We found out a lot about how they look and what makes them strong.

We took part in the technology challenge along with the rest of the junior classes. We all had to construct our bridges using newspaper, string and tape. We had to work in teams. It was a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity to show how well we could work as a team.

We have written information reports about swing bridges and have begun to label the parts of a swing bridge using a image we imported on KidPix - Look out for these reports on our blog in the next few weeks.
