We completed a carousel of DT skills activities in preparation of making our models of new town developments. We did some cutting, making of 3D nets, attaching cylinders, measuring and sawing wood, gluing different materials to make frames and adding triangles to strengthen our creations.
We have studied the lives of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong.
In our DT lesson we used everyday materials to model a boat similar to the one used by Columbus.
We spent time designing out boat discussing the features and their purpose, then we discussed the suitability of materials for our designs.
