Playing with Periscopes

At our school, during Terms 2 and 4, we usually have a learning focus on science and technology.
This term, we started with a science unit on Light and Colour.

Then we had a technology challenge!

We remembered the work we had done on the First World War in Term 1's Social Studies (here and here). The soldiers used periscopes in the trenches to see over the top.

Charlee brought her toy periscope.

We watched a video about making a periscope.

After our periscopes were made, we tried them out in the playground.

After a bit of tweaking, it was time to finish camouflaging our periscopes, ready for our game of hide-and-seek!

Have you ever used a periscope?
