Bridges by nicky

  1. 1. BRIDGES  Bridges can cross water. Some bridges over water move to let boats through. Others are high enough that boats can pass beneath. Bridges also cross valleys, ravines, railroad tracks, roads, and other things that block the way.  Bridges can be made of many materials. Early bridges were made of wood or stone. Many wooden bridges were covered to protect them from snow and rain so they would last longer.
  2. 2. Golden Gate Bridge  the golden gate Bridge is one of the world’s most famous bridges. It spans the San Francisco Bay in California.
