Italy Problem Solving

on

Today we started learning about Italy. We learnt about where it is and some interesting facts about Italians.

This afternoon we escaped the heat by learning a bit about Roman history in Italy. We had the challenge of transporting water to Rome using pipes.

We quickly came across some problems, like making sure the slope was the right way around and checking for holes in our pipes. We persevered though and successfully transported our water through these homemade aqueducts.

Then we looked at images of the real Roman aqueducts. We were amazed at how they were able to build such amazing structures 2000 years ago. We realised that the challenges we faced were the same as the Romans and found out their solutions to the problems.
