Today Miss Foster’s class had the choice of building a bridge or a tower in class to see how many pennies it could hold up in a cup. They had to meet the requirements of height and amount of items they could use.  We used an engineering process of trial and error. If the building fails the first time we are able to identify what is wrong and make a change in our design.
