We have had lots of fun in science this week by looking at different materials. We need to become material experts so we know what materials would be best to make a shelter in our final challenge.
We have been looking in detail at plastic, glass, metal and wood. We looked at their properties and what they would be suitable for.
Today, we have been looking at what makes a good shelter by exploring different materials. We discovered that a shelter needs a structure, a cover and a material to tie things together.
We have had lots of fun trying out a small shelter. We even made sure it would stop us from getting wet!
