Building Bridges with Kindergarten Students
For the past week and a half, one of our kindergarden classes (K-Leahi) has been busy studying, learning and building bridges. Using Engineering is Elementary from the Science Museum-Boston as a guide, our youngest makers learned about structures, forces, and material properties. They made predictions, tested for results and recorded their data. At the same time all that was going on, these little ones were having fun. Here are a few pictures of what we did...more will be added in the future:
Testing different bridge structures.
Examining different materials.
Imagining possible bridge designs.
Creating the bridges
