Making Mini Greenhouses: Stability

SKU D34IL401002
Key Stage 2 Design & Technology Year 3 Year 4

What does stability mean? Children first explore some of the factors that make a structure stable, and then apply this knowledge and understanding to greenhouses. In their independent activities, children investigate the best frame size and shape for a stable structure that also lets in the maximum amount of sunlight. In the FSD? activity, children focus on how they could improve the stability of a structure by using other materials as extra support.
