On Friday Primary 1 was given the challenge of designing and making a bigger, more comfortable bed for Baby Bear. (It has been a while since Goldilocks visited the Three Bears’ house and Baby Bear has outgrown his little bed.) The children worked in pairs and used their knowledge about materials and their measuring skills to complete the challenge successfully. First they did some research, looking at pictures of children’s beds on Google Images. Then they discussed their ideas together and drew a plan. Next they looked at the materials available and chose the best ones for the each part of their design. Then they made the bed, checking that Baby Bear would fit in it. Last of all the teams reviewed their work and reported back to the class, talking about things that had worked well and changes that had to be made. Fantastic work, everyone!
