Imagine if we could build a house……
The magic wand sent us on an adventure to a building site! First, we had to put our hard hats on and high-vis jackets. Then, we got our clipboards. Next, we walked to the building site and saw a range of building materials such as wheelbarrows, cones, a cement mixer, builders, drills, a ladder and much much more! We used our check lists to record what we saw. We were so excited!
