Engineering 3D habitats

During today we have been working together as teams to begin to turn our 2D designs into 3D habitats. 
Initally the children worked together to use nets to create 3D shapes. This was very challenging and required the children to be perseverant and resilient learners.  

After this we began to add colour and texture to our habitat designs. We began by using paint to change the colour of the ground to match the different habitats. Using our knowledge of 3D shapes we then made trees by curling paper around a pencil to create a cylinder. Once we were happy with the 3D shape we the used scissors to create branches and added tissue paper for the leaves,
