Year 2 have been making tetrahedrons using dowls and elastic bands. This activity involved so much learning. For instance the children discussed the properties of 3D shapes, they had to utilise their dexterity and resilience to join the dowls with elastic bands and they had to communicate and cooperate with their partner to finish the task. They did a fantastic job and moved on to joining the tetrahedrons together. We then discussed the value of this shape in an engineering sense and looked at examples of structures that utilised tetrahedrons.
