Build A Bridge Challenge

Miss M. Daly challenged the children to create a bridge using paper, lolly-pop sticks, corks and tape that would support the weight of three toy teddy bears. Construction challenges provide a fabulous opportunity for the development of a range of important skills: inventiveness, problem solving, creative thinking, perseverance, motivation and the ability to overcome disappointment, evaluation, editing and revision, analytical thinking and the use of a range of real life tools. It was wonderful to watch the children work collaboratively to find solutions to the challenge.
