Turtles Class: Moving mechanisms on our lighthouses

Following the success of our lighthouse designs, we have been working together today to complete the moving parts on our Lighthouses. Some of us opted to create a moving wheel using a cotton reel, with lots of us opting to create a pulley-wheel using a bottle top as witnessed on our demonstration. We thought about how we could create a basket and connect it using a range of strings, before putting it altogether and trying it out. We were amazed that they all worked. How brilliant!
