During our workshop lessons in Technology, we got to build a model of a construction site.
We took care of the slab foundation, the electrowelded mesh (which the students welded with the soldering iron). Afterwards, we started building reinforced pillars as they are built in real life. The students used cement and mixed it with gravel and sand to create concrete.
They constructed a frame from pieces of plywood and poured concrete inside the frame to let it harden for 24 hours.
It turned out like a real house! So we added the bricks to make the walls, stacking them with the help of the mortar (that we simulated with glue). Even a window frame seemed like a perfect idea to get our construction site done.
And here you can check out the result. Notice the students' creativity (There's no limit to what they can do!).
Thanks everyone, it's been fantastic working with you on this project.
