Bridge Building

Oh no! The bridge has fallen down!

How will the goats get across now? Can you make a bridge to help them cross over the river and avoid the troll?

 

You could use pasta and playdough.

Can you help by building a new bridge?

What shape is the bridge going to be?

Is there any way you can make your bridge stronger?

Do you need more playdough?

Is your bridge long enough?

Have you tried using different shaped pasta?

Have a look at some pictures of real bridges around the world and here's another idea on what you could use to make your own bridge.

Troll Art

Can you make your own troll face?

Use playdough, clay or make your own salt dough for your creation. Can you use natural materials that you’ve collected in your garden or on your walk to add details to it’s face? You could make you troll as a model or even on the side of a tree (as long as you only use natural materials).

Make your troll look really scary and intimidating!

Here are some ideas and a salt dough recipe.

Peaceful Art

 

We need to create a beautiful piece of art work that the Troll will love. He can be rather grumpy and a beautiful picture might cheer him up.

Can you listen to this piece of music and draw a picture at the same time?

 

How do you feel? Do you think the troll is happy now? Did you use beautiful bright colours?

Science

 

 

We need to make some clothes for the troll to wear. He lives under a bridge and can get rather wet and dirty. What kind of material do we think the troll could wear?

 

Watch this song about materials

 

We need to test some everyday materials to see if they would be suitable for the troll to wear. They need to be warm and waterproof as he lives near water under the bridge!!

Can you find materials such as tin foil, paper, a rain coat sleeve, a piece of cotton fabric and a piece of wool fabric. Place them over a bowl and pour some drops of water onto them. Which material stops the water from going into the bowl? Does this mean it is waterproof? Would it be suitable for the troll to wear? Would it keep him warm?
