Completed Toothpick Bridges Science Enrichment Hours 1, 3 and 4 Upon completion, sadly each bridge was destroyed to see which one was able to support the most weight. Most weights were are given in grams, but we ran out of gram weights and had to use pounds for two bridges. Pictures are listed in order from most to least amount the bridge held.
Building Toothpick Bridges Science Enrichment Hours 1, 3 and 4 For this project students selected a job (project director, architect, accountant, carpenter or transportation chef) and were then placed on teams to construct a toothpick bridge based on certain criteria and within a given budget. All teams ran their company like a real business by ordering materials, writing checks, keeping a balance sheet, drawing bridge designs, following building codes, constructing their bridge, meeting deadlines, etc.
Going along with reading the book Almost Astronauts and Amelia Earhart, each quarter students can volunteer to do a project to raise money for a charity of their choice. Below are some of Chatterton's Heroes!
