this week's challenge:
This week, with the help of an adult, your challenge is to create your own protective shield which would help you survive if you were a wild animal.
1. what you will need:
Browse everything in your house or garden to find any suitable items that you can add to your cape. Your cape can be simply a t-shirt, bed sheet, or blanket that you’re happy to pin, staple, or safely attach the items to. Please ask for help from your parent or guardian when doing this. Suitable items may include paper or cardboard that you’ve cut to shape or coloured in, fallen leaves or bark, or even cushions from the sofa. Please do not use any sharp objects.
2. what we're looking for:
We’re looking for your version of a protective cape or shield that you can create using household items or natural materials.
did you know?
here.Did you know that there’s an animal called a ‘pangolin,’ and they’re one of the most interesting-looking animals? They’re covered head to toe with scales. The scales are made out of keratin - the same material as our fingernails - and can protect pangolins a from a lion’s bite. How cool is that? Our vets in Malawi have helped treat injure pangolins, find out what happened
3. how to complete the challenge:
Show us what you did! You can do this by taking photos of you wearing the protective clothing or just show us the protective clothing you've made!
