Purple challenge


Yesterday you wrote about the invention you felt changed the world or had the greatest impact on our lives.  Today I'd like you to put on your thinking and creative caps and write about something you would invent or, as explained in the video, what improvements/modifications you would make to an existing object.  

Your paragraph will be include why you have invented the object, who would benefit from it and what use it would have to you or the wider world. 

I would also like you to draw a diagram of your invention, label the materials used and the functioning parts.   

Mrs Dunford explains the task

For art this afternoon, we are going to recreate some cave drawings.  You will need some paper, a pencil and some coloured pencils.  If you have chalks or pastels that will add even more realistic details.  Below is a link to a youtube video.  The lady suggests using brown paper to draw on.  You may have some parcel paper or you could start by preparing an aged piece of paper using cold tea or coffee (like we have previously done in class), remember not to get the paper too wet!  Watch the video all the way through as it tells the story of the discovery of ancient drawings in a cave in France.  She then gives you step by step instructions on what to do.  Remember cave drawings told a story and were used almost like a diary to record the events of the day.  I have also attached below a couple pictures to help you with your images.  Include animals, weather, people and food.  Gook luck and I look forward to seeing your creations.
