  1. Love this project...did you discuss construction methods in advance, since they all seem to be making newspaper tubes?

  2. Thank you! Yes, I showed them how to roll newspaper tubes and we took 3-5 minutes to look at the Eiffel Tower and bridge designs. I gave no suggestions... just had them look at the shapes architects and engineers designed.
