Shade and Shelter


Investigate, evaluate, purpose, function, shelter. 


Our DT project this term is called 'shade and shelter'. We will explore the purpose of shelters and why we need them. We will research shelters and look at shelters in our school grounds. Using our research we will design and make shelter prototypes. We will use all of our learning from this project, including our prototypes and at the end, design, build and use a play den. 


Which of these shelters have you seen before? 

Which den would you build? Do you have any other ideas?
