R27 and R23 used their prior knowledge about how structures stay upright. We used what we know about balance, foundations and wide supports. We also used our knowledge about what shapes provide good support. Have a look at our slide show and see what we've built.

Check out this short slide show of what we've been doing in the science lab!

We have gone on some field expeditions to observe how living and non-living things support themselves. We found that they get support from shapes like squares, triangles, cylinders & rectangles. Buildings need foundations. Plants get support from other plants, stems and big plants get support from trunks.IMG_5118.JPG


We then tried building our own structures to see if we could use what we'd observed and make a sky scraper!
