Different materials can be used for different purposes, depending on their properties. For example:
Do you think you have the creativity to design and make an imaginary version of a familiar pet?
→ Watch the story of 'Heironymus Betts and his Unusual Pets' before you get designing - you might find a little more unusual inspiration hidden amongst its pages...
TASK: Plan and make a model of your new creature design.
Start off with lots of photos of familiar pets and the pet design sheets - these can help if you want to plan a similar looking creature. If you fancy becoming a mad-pet-scientist, why not be brave and draw your very own unusual pet on a blank piece of paper!
Once your design plan is DRAWN and LABELLED (body part, description, colour, pattern, building material...) you are ready to BUILD! Have a hunt around the house for plenty of coloured drawing materials and junk materials for model building. Your creature might be a mini-model, life-size or even a GIANT imagining.
Get creative and HAVE FUN .
