Roly Polys


The children of class 2 have designed a roly poly toy. They found out how toys moved and investigated the following types;
Racers - wheels mounted centrally so they roll in a straight line.
Ditherers - wheels mounted offset so they move straight but go up and down as they move.
Wanderers - wheels mounted offset so they follow a zig zag path.
They investigated how to fix wheels to the body, explored faces and used collage techniques, decorating the tubes with patterns.
They then tested and evaluated their toys.
