As part of the Science week the children had to use their engineering skills to Create An Insect. They worked with a partner and were given 1 hour to build their chosen insects. The only materials they were allowed were 4 A4 pieces of paper (from the recycling bin), scissors, pencils / crayons. They could not use glues, sticky tape or clips.
They had lots of fun;
Researching their insects.
Finding ways to shape and strengthen the paper.
Exploring how to connect their insect parts.
