Material girls and boys

After the Easter holiday we have been carrying on our Little Kingdoms project.  We are going to make little houses for the elves and fairies to live in.

The first thing we had to do was find out the properties of differenr materials.  We sorted them in to different groups such as water-proof and not water-proof; transparent and not see through; flexible or stiff; soft or hard etc.

We used our new knowledge to think about how we would build a house for the elves and fairies out of junk modelling materials.  We drew our designs and labelled them, showing which materials we planned to use and why.

I'm using cotton wool for the bed because it is soft.


Lollypop sticks will make a strong frame.
Today we are building our designs.  Check back later to see how we've gone on.
