Materials challenge

We finished our materials topic with a challenge where the children could show their learning.

The children were asked to design a bag which could beat one of the three challenges- strong,  waterproof or flexible.

In teams, they discussed the available materials and decided which would be best for their challenge.

After creating their bags, we tested them to see which were successful.

The challenge was a great opportunity for co-operative learning, and the children really enjoyed working together.
