In the classic story of The Gingerbread Man, our hero gets eaten by the fox when he can’t get across the river on his own. Let’s design a bridge so the gingerbread man can get himself over the river to safety!
Talk with your child about what makes a good bridge. What characteristics does a bridge need, what are they used for, and what are they made of? Introduce your child to the different types of bridges, including arch, beam, cable-stayed, suspension, and truss bridges. Check them out on the internet.
Make your bridge indoors or outdoors and test it out. I have put some ideas below for you to have a look at. You could also test your bridge out to see how stable and strong it is.
