Linked to our India Topic we will be considering Shelter, focused through some D&T activities.
To begin with collect pictures of different shelters- either on the computer or cut out from magazines. Get as many different types of shelter as you can.
Write a few sentences to explain what makes them strong. Are they also water proof or wind resistant? Explain how this has been achieved.
You will be designing your own shelter in the coming weeks so look really carefully at the features of the shelters you find.
Stage 1 - To design a shelter fit for a purpose.
Stage 2 - To add a mechanical device into my design
Stage 3 - To create a home learning-style model of my design
