Fractional Bridge

How exciting that we are building bridges! In order to be ready for Monday’s building, your group will need to submit as a comment what you will need. Here’s how you will do it:

In the comments write:

1. The names of the group members

2. Your bridge name

3. List the fraction of each item that you are planning on getting. Make it very clear how much of each item you will need.
(Example: 1/2 of 12 marshmallows = 6 marshmallows needed)

This will lock in your “order” for your materials.
