6B 7/5/20-Science (Planning your ride)

Earlier in the week you began collecting materials from home, your garden, your daily walks and recycled objects in preparation to create a roller coaster.

Today your task is to begin planning your roller coaster design. To do this you need to draw your design and annotate it. You need to write a set of instructions for yourself.

A picture of your plan NEEDS to be emailed to- y6upload@broadheath.coventry.sch.uk

Instructions need to be written on the blog comment.

Below are ideas of roller coasters made by children- these ideas are here to inspire you and guide you to create your own.
