Skeleton Structures in P5

We have learned that our skeletons has three main uses: Support, Protection and Movement.

We investigated how a skeleton provides us support. We worked in groups to design a structure that had to hold a tennis ball for five seconds as high off the table as possible. We had strict and limited resources. Some groups were successful and others learned the need for a good base support. Our skeleton has a wider base than the top. This allows us to stay upright.
