History Street - Iron Age House
We have a book about the history of houses out on loan from the library. We read about an iron age house and looked at the design before constructing our own model. We talked about what it might be like to live in this house and how it is different to our own house. First we used lolly sticks and matches to make the frame, these would have been wood in the real house.
Next we added a thatched roof made with drinking straws. We needed fast drying glue for this (fabric glue/balsa cement).
Keep your eye out for our next building.
