Fractional Bridge Reflections

Hi students! We had quite an experience with building our fractional bridges, didn’t we?

1. Restate what we had to do when building these bridges and completing the challenges.

2. What were some of the questions that you had for me as you were working on this?

3. How did you solve this problem?

4. What were some difficulties with this project?

5. What was your favorite thing about your bridge?

6. What changed between your planning and the actual building? Did your bridge end up looking just like your plan?

7. What else would you like to add?

  1. 1.We had to use all our the fractions and we had to use all our materials
    2.We didn’t know what to do with the straws.
    3.We stuffed the straws in a tube that holds the bridge up.
    4.One team member on the team was absent.
    5.Our favorite thing about our bridge is the clay road.
    6.We changed a little bit about our bridge.We changed one part of our plan.

    Our group is called BLAH and our bridge is called the Tubeline Bridge. BLAH stands for Bridge Landscape At Henrico. We had to use fractions to gather materials by getting a certain fraction and using that amount of material. One challenge we had to complete was keeping the tunnel/bridge together. Some questions we had were…How big are the matchbox cars? What materials are we going to use? Does it have to be a bridge? Where are we going to test the bridge?

    We conserved tape and tried to use as less as we could. Some difficulties we had were…it was hard to keep the bridge together. We had to make sure we used all the supplies. The lightning kept falling of the lightning rod. Our favorite parts of the bridge is Jason, Sally, Jimmy, and Bob. We also like the lightning rod.

    Our bridge was different than what we planned because we had never planned to have the people on our bridge also we never knew we were going to have a lightning rod. Aidan would like to add more people. Emma would like to add extra support the bridge. Chloe would like to add more color. Ayden would like to add more detail.

  3. 1. Restate what we had to do when building these bridges and completing the challenges.
    We had to brain storm on what bridge were going to make.

    2. What were some of the questions that you had for me as you were working on this?
    We did not have any questions as a team.

    3. How did you solve this problem?
    Our bridge fell at the last second so we could not fix it.

    4. What were some difficulties with this project?
    The problems we had where our bridge kept falling down. We also did not have enough tape to tape the straws on our bridge.

    What was your favorite thing about your bridge?
    Our favorite part of the bridge was all the decorations.

    6.What changed between your planning and the actual building? Did your bridge end up looking just like your plan?
    Our bridge changed by the way it looked. Our bridge changed to be nothing like our plan.

    What else would you like to add?

    We would like to have more tape, time, and clay.

    Mrs. Doyle are teacher told us to build a bridge out of classroom supplies for a project.
    One of our questions was if she could help us figure out the problem we were stuck on? Mrs. Doyles respons was you try to figure it out and if you don’t I will come back. Then she came back and helped us figure it out. One of our difficulties was that we did not have a lot of time to build our bridge.Our favorite thing about the bridge we made was that it could go up and down so ships could go through.The bridge we made did not end up looking like the drawling we made because we combined Hank’s and Ethan’s plan. If we could add one more thing to our bridge it would be adding tongue depressors and taping them down so they could get up and down.
