This practical module explores different kinds of shelters, their materials, uses and components, and gives children the opportunity to develop their skills in a variety of areas.

###### #TheCompleteSeries6lessons

Challenge your class to use different materials to create stable free-standing objects, looking specifically at how to reinforce structures.
