One Childhood - One Chance

Homework Task Friday 8th January.

This Week's homework task is linked to our new topic 'Our Planet'

Your task links in with all of the research you did during Thursday's lesson.

We would like you to design and make an earthquake proof building. Use whatever materials you think would be appropriate for your building to be able to withstand an earthquake. Think about flexible materials which bend and move but can go back to their original shape. Think about the shape of the building and it's foundations.

You can present your work in a multitude of different ways. Only use the items you have in your house.

Get researching and prepare yourselves to be our future engineers!

If you wish to test out your building's ability to withstand an earthquake, please email us your pictures.

Good luck and get engineering!

Due date: Wednesday 13th January 2021.
