Building different Habitats (Self-Management (We can take responsibility…
The basis of the activity would consist of young learners having the freedom to create their own habitat that they would enjoy co-living in. I would ask them to research about the different materials they could use, the difficulties they might face when trying to build their own habitats and why they want to use that certain material. This would make them think about the suitability of the materials used. They would also have to think about the different structures. They would then have a chance to use what they gathered from their research to try and build it themselves. This would really fit into the social aspect of the activity. They would have to fix structures that didn't work from their research and show persistence and teamwork in making it better. This would have them refer back to their research and co-operatively work together to think of another way to do things. From this, they would then be able to fill in their habitats with different things the group has to offer.
