First we started with looking at pictures and we saw The Golden gate bridge, Brooklyn bridge The arches Balbriggan. We discussed bridges around Balbriggan like the one when your going to Drogheda. Then we made our own little bridges. Mr. Brown gave out dictionaries and 2 paper sheets and then we began too make our bridges. The paper bridge wasn’t strong it only held 1g, the walled bridge was strong but not strong enough it only held 1g and 5g,5g.The corrugated bridge was the strongest for me.
