You can find many images of Clifton Suspension Bridge on the Internet.

Resources

What answers did the children get?

Check that children understand that as the time period increases so does the amount of cars and money.

If the suspension bridge makes the amount of money said, is it all profit? What costs would have to be taken away?

Children to suggest ideas

(Staff, light bulbs, electricity etc.)

How could we find out what the actual answers are? – Phone the bridge etc.

Show children photo of Clifton suspension bridge.

Can they estimate:

How wide is it?

How tall is it?

How many cars would travel over it on a minute, an hour, a day, a year?

At 30p per car how much money do you think is made by the bridge each hour, day etc.?

Children need to make links between different time relationships.

Discuss how Brunel’s design won a competition.

What do you think are the difficulties in building a bridge over a gorge?

When building the bridge, at first people travelled across the gorge in a basket attached to a wire. (Brunel was the first to go across!)

Pose problems.

Ask children to estimate certain things.

e.g. how long it takes to do certain things (Count to 100, say the alphabet backwards, etc.)

How many times you can do an activity within a certain time.

e.g. write your name down in a minute.

How much money does the suspension bridge make each year?
