Hi I am an ex Primary School Head Teacher who is passionate about making attractive, tried and tested, time-saving resources for teachers. I have over 25 years teaching experience and all of these resources have been tested in 'the field'. Please take the time to have a look - they are all sensibly priced, Having had over 500,000 views and over 380,000 downloads as 'free' resources, all of these resources have been updated and are now on sale. There also many new resources on my site.
This activity is a Design Technology Activity which requires children to select materials from a virtual 'shop’ and collaborate to plan and build a bridge that will span a distance between two chosen points. I’ve included an information sheet outlining this DT activity. I've also added a planning sheet for pupils and an excel spreadsheet for teachers to record the results of this activity should they wish to assess it or turn it into a competition...who wouldn’t? As a free resource this has had over 7500 downloads. It has been updated and is a 'ready-to-go' resource with everything you need to have a great afternoon.
