Learn about structures alongside Ruff Ruffman in this Teacher's Guide from The Ruff Ruffman Show. There are a lot of different kinds of structures, and what they’re made of, as well as their shape and weight, affects their strength and stability when they encounter a force. Students can use the videos, games, and activities from The Ruff Ruffman Show to learn about the properties of materials, force and motion, and stability as Ruff designs, tests, builds (and breaks!) different structures.
