STEM Week: Squirrels
The poor Billy Goats Gruff have had some bad news. The bridge that they use in Spring to get to the grass field is broken. In February we had lots of snow, ice and strong winds. The bad weather destroyed the old bridge and the poor Billy goats can’t get to the field full of fresh, green grass.
In order to help them, Class 3 Squirrels have decided to design and build a new bridge for them. The bridge needs to be at least 60cm long and strong enough to support the small, medium and large Billy goats.
We need to ensure the safety of the Billy goats as a mean troll lives under the bridge and he wants to eat the Billy goats. Should they fall from the bridge they may drown or be eaten which would be very sad.
We used a thinking actively in social context (TASC) wheel to support our learning.
