How Will Your Beast Open Its Mouth?
One of the units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology in which children design and make an animal with a moving mouth.
Children study their own mouth and head movements and those of animals before designing their animal's mouth. The mechanisms used by the children are restricted to a cam and follower, a simple crank or a crank and slider.
The context of the activity is that of designing a set of moving animals that can be used to promote interest in animals in a variety of situations, such as on farms, in zoos or at home.
