  1. I like to construct and I modified my design five times and it did work. All I needed was string, cardboard and foam wheels.

  2. I made a car. I used a cardboard box, mini cardboard rolls, a foam tube, a shoe box, four strong plastic sticks for axels, sticky tape, and cardboard strips to hold the axels up. I also used some planks of cork, some paint, some glitter and some pom poms. I included a Baker’s Delight sign so it looked like a truck from Baker’s Delight. I enjoyed this activity.

  3. I Loved making my construction.
    My design I used some toilet rollers (2) a cardboard box (2) skewer sticks.flat circle(4).sticky tape. This is how I made it. I got the cardboard box. I poked the skewer sticks in the box. sticky taped the flat circle on the cardboard roll. I poked it into the skewer stick. Then I painted it.

  4. I made a car. I modified my construction 2 times. I used a shoe box, sticky tape, 4 cardboard wheels, 2 rubber straps, PVA glue, scissors, safety pin and 2 straws. This is how I made my construction. Firstly, I glued the rubber straps at each end with PVA glue. Then, I poked the safety pins and scissors through each side of the wheels. I slithered the wheels across the straw. Then, I attached the sticky tape at the bottom of the box. I added seats at home. I enjoyed this activity.
