Our favela

Categories: s1 and s2
Fantastic response from my first s1 constructing their favela dwellings. The lesson went very well, some great teamwork and bargaining. A sense of injustice when some groups had more string than others, and a bit of moaning about some groups getting to the 'dump' first and so on, but only one group never got their house completed in time-The class watched as the 'bulldozers' moved in (4 of the boys!). We have still to test against the elements, and another favela will be springing up on Monday with my other s1 class-Very messy, but really enjoyable exercise!

More pictures coming soon!
