Which Bridge is the Best?

 

3. The Student Activity

 

       Click on the names of the bridges to see some of the bridges found around the world.  Then pick your four favorites and find out:

the location in the world

the type of bridge and

the length and width.

 

        Record the information on the charts provided by your teacher. Your teacher will either print the grid on paper for you, or you can build one as a table in your word processing program. Once you have all the information, then you will decide which bridge is the largest and which has the best geometric design.
