Teacher Background Information
English Language Learner suggestions
When they are designing bridges, civil engineers integrate the natural science phenomena of balance and motion. In this unit, students explore why bridges are shaped differently. Students distinguish between beam, arch, and suspension bridges and learn how bridge designs counteract and redirect forces and motion. In the culminating design challenge, students design, construct, and test their own bridges.
