Room 15 Building Projects During Term 2, Room 15 watched the builders making a start on the new classrooms. We learnt about drawing a plan, gaining consent for our plan, building a structure with a strong frame, different ways of attaching the cladding and making a floor and roof. These are our finished houses.
Aaron’s House My house is strong because I wrapped my house with cellotape and the ice block sticks are close together to make the house strong as well.
Amy’s House My house is 100% strong because I put lots of sticks on for the cladding and I put lots of cello tape to keep the cladding on. My special features of my house are the security camera’s and the rainbow and peach cladding.
Anaya’s House My house is pretty strong but it sometimes collapsed and sometimes the sticks fell off as well. On the roof it is like snow up top so if the big bad wolf climbs up on the top he will slip and slide and fall back off.
Ario’s House Just a little bit strong because it is almost falling down. I have one wall of cladding on and bracing with a triangle brace on the wall.
Caleb’s house with a bicylce My house used to be very weak but when I put the floor on it got stronger and when I put the roof on it was even stronger again.
Dylan’s House My house is kind of strong because it is leaning a little bit but also has bracing so that is how it is kind of strong. I have a door, a ceiling not a roof (a ceiling is on the inside and a roof is on the outside). I have wooden cladding, a frame, bracing in the shape of triangles for strength, and a floor.
Edrich’s House My house will be pretty strong because I have 2 layers of sticks and it will have a strong base. I haven’t finished it yet. The special features will be a security camera, flat screen TV, carpet, door, frame on the inside, roof, and a floor.
Edward’s House I think my house is strong because I put lots of cello tape on my roof to make it strong. For my frame, my frame is kind of strong. My special features of my house is my cladding that is colourful.
Eirik’s House My house is so weak that it can’t even stand up straight because I used gift wrap tape and the frame broke twice. I used straws for the framing, gift wrapping tape, sticks for the cladding, a ceiling for anti water-proofness, broken frame for weakness and bracing for strength.
Gwen’s House My house is quite strong but it is still a little bit wobbly. It doesn’t have enough cello tape holding the cladding on. The special features are framing, floor, cladding, bracing and a roof.
Hana’s House My house is very strong because I have bracing shaped like a triangle and I know that the triangle shape is the strongest shape. I have used lots of tape to hold the cladding together. The special features of my house are:
A heat pump
A door that won’t open for the big bad wolf!
A strong frame
Jacob’s House My house is very strong because I used bracing and strong cladding. The special features are a roof, floor, and security camera.
James House My house is very strong because I put lots of cello tape all over the house as the cladding and I put wooden stick bracing instead of plastic bracing. My special features are 3 security camera’s, a door, 2 windows, window shutters, door knob, bracing, a flat screen TV, floor, roof, walls, an armchair, a bed and a strong frame.
Julia’s House My house is strong because it has a sort of strong frame but it also has an interlocking stick which is hanging out as support. The special features are a flower trap, telescope stand, security camera, strong frame, emergency hatch, flat roof, door and window. (cladding too!)
KaYeon’s House My house is quite strong because if I try to blow it down it doesn’t really move. My house is not too strong though because my cladding and frame isn’t that strong. I have an opening door, and things on the inside.
Kyle’s House My house is very strong because I put 2 layers of milk bottle plastic on for the roof and I put lots of thick ice block sticks on close together for the cladding.
Mackenzie’s House My house is very, very strong because I puts strong cladding on with the wide sticks and lots of cello tape. The ice blocks have holes for the tazors, a flat screen TV, a roof, cladding and a frame.
Mellisa’s House My house is not strong because I didn’t put enough tape on to hold the cladding on. I have a frame of straws, wooden cladding and a triangle shape fro bracing on the top.
Mitchell’s House My house is strong because I put wide sticks on. I haven’t finished all the sides. I have a floor, a frame and a triangle shape bracing.
Morgan’s House My house is not strong because it is crooked and unstable. It only has a frame, a floor and no cladding yet.
Pahan’s House My house is strong because the walls are made in a block and then stuck on and it has more cladding to keep it strong.
Rita’s House First my house was a little bit wobbly but when I finished making my house it was strong. I put so much cello tape all around the cladding. The special features are a blue security camera, a wooden roof and plastic sides on the roof, a straw frame and wooden cladding.
Sadheera’s House My house is a little bit strong because I put on lots of cello tape over the wooden framing but it is still crooked because my frame was crooked. My special features are a roof, cladding, frame, floor and last but not least is a triangle shape as bracing.
Samrath’s House My house is very strong but it is crooked. I put lots of cello tape on the framing to make it strong. My special features are a frame, cladding, security camera, a TV, a floor and a roof.
Seoyun’s House I think my house is not strong because I didn’t put enough cladding on as there were lots of gaps. I have a blue security camera and I have a roof, and cladding and the best is the frame.
Tom’s House Very Strong house. I put lots of security and used pipe cleaners on the roof, a strong frame, wooden cladding, and an opening door.
Vivian’s House My house is not very strong but sort of strong at the same time! When I dropped it on the ground most of it broke but I fixed it again. It has a frame, wooden cladding, a plastic roof, wooden floor and bracing on the inside.
The real buildings by the end of Term 2!
