As this is the final day designing our theme park, today we would like you to use equipment available in your house (e.g. cardboard, Lego, building blocks, papier mache), to create a model of your park. This could be all of your park or just a section of it (e.g. create one rollercoaster).
We hope you've had fun designing your theme park over the last week! We can't wait to see what you have come up with so don't forget to send your work to Y2@mostonlane.manchester.sch.uk!
