Dragon Masks 23.3.12

Dragon Masks
Today we made dragon masks.  We have been reading the book, "Dragons, Dragons, Dragons" which is about dragons who are trying to make friends but the people keep running away because they are scared.
We think our dragon masks are cool, fancy and scary.  We like to SCARE people with our masks!

The Fridge Rover

The Fridge Rover can climb and move on the whiteboard.  It has a magnet inside it that helps it stick to things that are made of metal like a fridge or the whiteboard.  It is made of white plastic and the wheels are black rubber.  It looks like a little moon car or a space car or a moon rover.    We wonder if it would climb up a wall, a window, a rubbish bin, a basket ball hoop or a table.   We tried and found out that it didn't climb up a wall or the table or the window.  It didn't work because they weren't made of metal.  It could stick to the basketball hoop but it didn't climb because it wasn't flat.  But.... we found out that it does climb up the pole outside Whio awhina.

Fridge Rover

On Monday Mrs Neish showed us a crazy little car that she found in a shop.  It is called a 'Fridge Rover' and it climbs up, down and across the whiteboard!
We brainstormed some words to help us think about how it does this.
