Design = to plan, create or invent something new or different. Build = to physically make something from a design.
In this letter I have grouped similar activities together so you can choose which of the clauses to do to complete the activity Activity A = papier mache Activity B = Flagpole Activity C = Newspaper & Sticky tape Activity D = Lashing Activity E = whatever you like
I have included designs for some of the clauses that will give you ideas of how to do it but be creative. I know you will come up with great new twists on old ideas.
I had a lot of fun designing and building this letter and hope you have fun completing it. (It was cut into a jigsaw puzzle for the girls to put together before doing the activities)
In this letter there are 24 pictures of famous man-made structures & notes about them, These have become famous for different reasons - when made, how constructed, why they were made, what they are made of, who designed or made them. I hope you recognise some of them.
