In todays science lesson we are going to start by reading the story of "The Traction Man". Have a look at the video below to listen to the story being read aloud:
As you will notice, in the story there are lots of different materials that are mentioned:
Your first mission, is to write a sentence next to each of the materials above to say why that material is suitable for that use e.g. A knitted hat would keep you warm in the cold.
Now, pretend that you are Traction Man. You will need a suitable outfit. What materials can you find around your house to make an outfit that will protect you on your missions. Here are a few ideas below:
Now you are Traction Man, you have one final mission:
"Traction Man uses everyday household objects to carry out his adventures. Think of other objects and make a list of ways that Traction Man could use them... or ways that they could cause problems for him!"
Enjoy your mission team!
