Crafting Moon Buggies for Bob

Monday, 08 February 2016

Children in Year 2 at Beech House have been reading ‘The Man on the Moon’ and other stories by Simon Bartram about Bob, the person who looks after the moon. They really enjoyed the colourful illustrations and spotting all of the aliens that Bob misses as he goes about his day!

As part of their work related to reading the book, the children took on a ‘Technology Mission’ of designing a moon buggy for Bob.

They found out a bit more about the lunar rover vehicles that were used by real astronauts, and then designed their own versions that Bob might use to explore the moon’s surface. As well as having lots of fun, they also discovered how axles and wheels work. The children created working moon buggy models in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours.
