This week’s theme is engineering and towers. Download and look at the pictures on our activity sheet: Bright Ideas –The Big Question – Blackpool Tower and consider The Big Question – why does Blackpool Tower look like this? Talk together to discuss all the different reasons you can think of. Give yourselves time to think first. You can consider its shape, its size, its structure, what it’s made from, it’s purpose… you might want to do some research to find out more.
For Extra Challenge: Can you create your own version of the Blackpool Tower?
