Wk Beginning 3rd October 2016- The Perfect Parthenon!


This week, we have been learning about buildings that the Romans made. We discovered that there are still Roman buildings all over the world such as the Roman Baths in Bath!


We looked at what these buildings had in common and decided that their architecture was very important. We looked at columns and why they were important.



We then got into small groups to investigate what made the perfect Parthenon. We were only given two whiteboards, six pieces of card and some masking tape. We worked well within out groups and made our own designs. Some of us had lots of small columns, but others decided to have fewer taller columns.



When we had created our Parthenon buildings, we tested how strong they were by loading them up with dictionaries. If they could hold the weight, we tried weights! The strongest Parthenon could hold 24 dictionaries and over 10 kilograms in weight!
