Elementary STEM Units include cross-curricular activities and experiments that teach concepts in math, science, technology, and language arts. In today’s classroom, flexibility is key, and these STEM Units were created to be easily set up and adaptable.

Bridge Structures is a two-week Elementary STEM Unit for Grades 3-5 in which students work in teams of two to four to find out about different bridging structures. Students learn how to make strong structures, investigate properties of materials, and, for their challenge, build a beam bridge.

This unit comes with a unit guide, teacher notes, scope and sequence, teacher’s guide, student pages, assessments, and all the materials needed for a class of 24 students.

Note: If purchasing all Grades 3-5 Structures units, it is recommended that they be completed sequentially: Bridge Structures, Cantilever Structures, Suspension Structures, and then Arch Structures. The Structures Engineering Challenges Unit can be completed in a stand-alone manner.

See the Bridge Structures Contents resource for part numbers and quantities of included items.
