Parachutes outdoors are great!

Huts, mud, sticks and teepees

Made huts today - Aborigine group made a lean-to shelter, Amazonian Indians made a round hut, Maasai make the wall of a hut and plastered it with mud! and finally the Native American group made a teepee.

So much fun as well as building team work and problem solving skills.  When we were finished we toured all the huts before taking them down and leaving the woods as we found them.  Another good session outdoors.  This topic really lends itself to outdoor learning. 

Next time...see how we got on with a challenge for science and engineering week which is to make a contraption to make something move for the longest time...most of the class have ideas they want to do outside!
