Straw Bridges

Today room thirteen were building bridges out of straws. We were working hard with our straws. We worked as a team. At the beginning we weren't sure of what to do but in the end we solved the problems. We then waited for our turn to test our bridges between two chairs. When we put our bridges between the chairs, we thought that it was going to hold on. But sadly it did not hold to the chairs. Triangles are strong and help a bridge hold weight, but ours was a bit too weak and tiny.
