As part of the year 6 Rainforest topic we thought about some of the issues related to the distruction of the rainforest and some of the solutions. For the day we were responsible rainforest managers replanting trees and managing the forest. We designed and built lorries to safely move logs.
Once we had designed and built our lorries we took them outside and tested them. We measured out 10 metres and timed how long it took them to travel that distance. we managed to do this 5/6 times and collected lots of data.
