Topic - What's a Greenhouse? 

This week we are going to be exploring all the different parts of a greenhouse. We are going to look at the Eden project to see how this structure was made and start the design process taking inspiration from greenhouses all around the globe. Our big problem is that our sunflowers need a structure to keep them warm and help them grow. Last week we thought a greenhouse would be the perfect solution.

  • What do you think a greenhouse is made from? 
  • Can you label a greenhouse with the materials that you notice? 
  • How do you think different materials are joined together? 
  • Could you join some materials together and record yourself? 
  • Watch a video about the Eden Project about talk to your family all about the video. 
  • Start to draw and design your own green house. 
  • Collect different materials in your house that you could use to create a greenhouse.
