					    WORLD CONSTRUCTIONS:                                 6F & 6L            2003
                      Major Technology Project: Grade 6
This term our theme of study is The World Around Us. The children will be
required to design and create a famous construction / town / village that is
prominent in a particular city, country or phase in history. This piece of work is
to be made at home and presented in Week 9.

The children will need to present a brief plan of their construction at the end of
Week 3 (Friday 1st of August). This will include a sketch of the
construction, materials to be used and a procedure of how it will be
built.
       Parents and family are invited to help their children with this project.




                                  Some examples might be:
           Ancient Greece> Parthenon, Acropolis.
           Ancient Rome> Colosseum.
           Medieval England / Scotland> Castles and Fortresses.
           Maya, Aztec, Inca Cities.
           Ancient China / Japan> shrines, pagoda, The Forbidden City.
           Mosques / Minarets / Buildings of the East> Taj Mahal, Hindu Temples,
                                                       The Blue Mosque
           Pacific and African villages.
           North American Indian villages.

           Modern Buildings> Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building.
           Sporting venues> Wimbledon Tennis Centre, Yankee Stadium-New York.

                  ☺    These are just examples and children can use their own ideas as
                       well.
                  ☺    DO NOT CHOOSE AN AUSTRALIAN CONSTRUCTION!


           As well as the construction, the children will be required to
           write a written report about their construction and how it was
           made.
