Bird Hide Design and Make Challenge
Age 9-11 years
First published 2011
The focus of this unit is on structures and enterprise. It explores and extends children’s knowledge of structures through the brief of designing and making a small scale bird hide. It investigates the use of simple joining methods to creating frameworks with art straws, dowel and square section wood. Through this brief the children are challenged to show their enterprise and speaking and listening skills by having to pitch their final models in a presentation to a ‘Dragons’ Den’ of experts with the possibility of making a full size version of their hide. The resource contains three PowerPoint presentations offering the challenge to children, extensive teacher notes and examples of finished outcomes. There are also some resource sheets covering joining techniques, a helpsheet and unit of work and worksheets for the children.
