#YYCLC Day 91: BFG Week at Simons Valley - Thinking Big

Our Grade 3 and 4 students think big, really BIG! While working with an artist in residence in our DLC, the students decided they wanted to build the BFG from the novel, The BFG by Roald Dahl. After developing detailed sketching skills and learning how to scale up, students began building the BFG’s body parts. They were challenged to use cardboard, newspaper, and tape. They collaborated, tested, retested, reflected, solved problems and strategized.

The process continues… the students will need to figure out how to put our BFG together. The engineering challenge has just begun.. stay tuned for the final product.

We started with some sketching
