Estuary project

Over the past few weeks we have been researching, crafting and publishing to create a mobile, diorama or poster about estuaries. We made them to fit the criteria that Mrs Cameron set us. We had to make an estuary food web, explain what an estuary is, animals of the estuary, plants of the estuary, threats to an estuary and why an estuary is important. I created a mobile and here is a picture of it.

Optimist yacht net

Today we have made a paper optimist yacht. To do this you had to follow the instructions carefully. So you could have nice clean folds and the right pieces in the right place. I found it hard fiddling around with the little folds.
Below is a picture of my finished optimist yacht.
