A structure is essentially something that has been built from parts that have been arranged together.  Some common structures that you may be familiar with are buildings, towers, skyscrapers, bridges, dams, archways, aqueducts, tunnels... even the human body.

In addition to the Grade 1 and Grade 3 Science guides in the Virtual Learning Commons, here are a few other sites you can explore:
