Amazing Bridges from around the World Lesson

Just a nice and relaxed post for the weekend.  I came across a few sites that had some really impressive bridges from around the globe.  Some are still under construction.  Take a look at them and share them with your kids if you are keen.  My class will have a look at these Monday and discuss some of the purpose and features of them.  Then we'll create some straw and  pin bridges over a 50cm span and see which team can make the one that will hold the most amout of weight on it.  See how you go. 

Here are a some bridge links to work into your lesson
