Building Bridges!

Our STEM Day today was based on the book, Twenty-One Elephants. It was a cool historical story about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge. People did not trust that the bridge wouldn't collapse, so Mr. Barnum of Barnum & Bailey Circus, had the idea to bring his 21 elephants across to the bridge to show people it was safe!

Our STEM task today was to build bridges out of ONLY cups and Popsicle sticks for our bears to cross safely. WOW! You should have seen our long and strong bridges that spanned lengths all over our room. It was awesome and I wanted to share the pictures with you!
