July


This month we will have lots of fun, we are going to be architects! We will build a building with several floors. But first we are going to learn how a building works and what are all the different parts it has.

First we will see what structure can support it. After we are going to see how the water and electricity get to the building; with cables we will build a network and with pipes and water will see how the water will get to the different parts. Then we will examine what materials we need to do the walls; Cement, bricks, drywall or wood and we will make our own. Using putty and  a putty knife we will put them together and then with  a roller we will paint them.

We will look for clear materials and we will make windows so the sunlight can come through. With a small box and a pulley we will make an elevator and see how it works . Materials will go up and down in the elevator.

In this fun project we will discover and experiment what materials can be glued to one another, which ones are permeable or impermeable or how  the light, tv, and kitchen can work. What happens when we get into the shower? Where does the water comes from? Why are buildings and houses stable?

We will  have two very special guests an architect and an engineer that will talk about their work, materials and machines they use.

We are going to have a field trip to a construction site, we will give you all the details later on.

Hey Hey!

 

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the moon

The little dog laughed to see such fun

And the dish ran away with the spoon!
