Science Lesson Plan Example

OBJECTIVE


Students will work together to build a freestanding (not connected to anything for stability and withouT

piers/support structures along the span) bridge that is at least -- cm. long. [Distance can be determined

based on the materials being used and the age/grade of the students.]

TESTING

Each group of students should describe their bridge design elements to the class and demonstrate that it is

able to stand freely for a specific period of time. You can use blocks or books to create the space that must

be crossed or you can use two desks that are a specific distance apart.


Note: Since some bridges are likely to fall apart if a load competition is held, it is recommended that

photographs are taken of each of the bridges, from a variety of angles.

MATERIALS

Be creative-choose supplies that are available to

you and should be limited on budget. Popular

materials for bridge building challenges are:


  • Spaghetti noodles and marshmallows
  • Newspaper and tape
  • Cardboard and tape
  • Toothpicks and gumdrops
  • Popsicle sticks and glue
  • Straws
  • Other supplies that can be available include: scissors, meter stick

REFLECTION

  • Did your team build the bridge that was on the original design sheet? If no, what did you need to change?
  • Which elements of your final design worked well?
  • List materials or tools that you wish you would have had to make the bridge building process more successful.
  • If you could change anything that your team did when responding to the challenge it would be: What was the best part of the bridge challenge?

The below Science lesson plan template shows that the objective assigned to the class is that the students will work together to build a freestanding bridge, and each group of students should describe their bridge design elements to the class and demonstrate that it can stand freely for a specific period. The below science lesson plan template also has different categories for materials and reflection. As per the image, materials are creative-choose supplies available to you and should be limited on budget. At the same time, the reflection will help understand the team about the mistakes and forthcoming results. At the bottom, you can also include the school's website URL.
