Year 3 – Design and Technology TASC – Sledges

As part of our Pole to Pole Learning Journey, Year 3 developed their understanding of forces especially friction. This enabled them to build successful sledges that raced down the propped up tables icey slopes of the Poles!

We used the TASC approach to design, experiment, refine and test our sledges collaboratively. The end results not only overcame friction but met other requiements: strength, capacity and presentation.
