Should Your Creature Be Fierce or Friendly?

One of the units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. Students work in groups to design and make a statue of a creature to welcome visitors to the classroom during the day.

This task asks students to work in groups to design and make a statue of a creature that will welcome visitors to the classroom during the day or act as a guardian after school and deter intruders.

It should be large enough to create an immediate impression, stable so that it does not fall over, stiff so that it keeps its shape, strong so that it does not break easily, durable so that it lasts a long time, made from readily available and inexpensive materials, and impressive through quality of construction and finish.
