There are structures around us all the time, some of which we barely notice. What are they made from? What is their purpose? What do you notice about their shapes? What can be done to make them stronger? Throughout this unit the children will become builders and discover the secrets to holding up bridges and skyscrapers. We will start the topic by finding out what the children already know. We will discuss the term a stable structure. What does this mean?
