Tomato carriers

Children created tomato carriers, using boxes with a range of resources. Children have been able to design and a build a model that could transport as many cherry tomatoes as possible, at the same time, and without squashing them.

They built a basket to hold your their cherry tomatoes and design and a device to move the basket safely, from one place to another, without squashing the tomstoes.

At the end, children created baskets by adding the cherry tomatoes and pushing or pulling basket.  They made sure the cherries do not fall and sit comfortably.

    When we had finished making our cats we went outside to test them. Our wheel can.e of so we used selotape. On the adventure playground on the zip wire we pushed our carts down and we put tomato’s inside to see if one of the tomato’s will come out.
    Our group had a strong cart and none of the tomato’s ever came out.
    We manged to get all the tomatos safely down the hill however we did a brilliant magnificent cart.

    Presentation- I give the presentation 5 out of 5 because our cart was strong.

    Hope we do this next time
