Building Bridges in 5th Grade

Submitted by julia.murray on

Students in Miss Wood's class worked together to design and build bridges with only straws, pins, and tape.  The bridges were then tested to see how much weight they could hold.  They did a great job trying to work together to build the best bridges!
