Cable Car Making
As part of our DT project, which links to our 'Magnificent Mountains' topic, we attempted to make our own working cable cars. We planned, resourced, created and evaluated our models. Some were more successful than others. However, that's the designing process!
We have been learning about volcanoes and have written newspaper reports about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. We have also created a model and re-enacted the destruction ourselves, which you can see in our video below.
In groups, we all researched a specific mountain range and then created posters informing our classmates all about them. We then presented our findings. It was great fun and we found out lots of facts!
We also found out all about George Mallory and wrote diary entries based on his attempt to climb Everest in 1924.
