STEAM: Build a Rollercoaster

First use the clip attached to enjoy a rollercoaster ride - hold on tight! Then think about designing your own rollercoaster: Does your rollercoaster go upside down? How fast does it go? How tall do you have to be to ride? What would you call your rollercoaster? Do you have to wear a seatbelt? First gather strips of paper - this can be either white or coloured Then think about different lines e.g. curvy/bumpy/zig-zag/loops/spiral Next get creative! Use the strips of paper to create different types of lines. Remember to stick them down one at a time onto an A4 piece of paper or card After that while you are sticking down the little lines remember to think about where you will position each strip Then after the strips are glued to the white paper you can begin to draw and colour cars to add to the rollercoaster. Challenge can you find a way to your cars to stand freely on your rollercoaster Finally post a picture of your rollercoaster and /or use the microphone tool describe your design
