Building Bridges

The fifth graders at Guggenheim School participated in a PEP unit called Bridges.The students were divided into groups or "companies". Each company member had a specific responsibility. There was an accountant, a project manager, a carpenter, and an architect.  The task was to design and build a bridge. A virtual account of a million dollars was available so that the group could purchase supplies, design, and build. The team members learned about structure and design. They learned how to write checks and balance a bank account. Most importantly they learned how to compromise.
