Toothpicks can be used for more than just cleaning teeth. With the Toothpick Bridges Maker Project, students can build bridges out of toothpicks and test them to see how much weight their bridges can hold. The project includes enough materials for a whole class to build bridges, including toothpicks, glue, a tester, and a Dr. Zoon Toothpick Bridges Video. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
