How to make a Shaduf

Farmers in Ancient Egypt used a shaduf to lift water from the canals. They could then use this on their fields and crops.

The downloadable resource below includes a set of instructions that will teach your children how to make a shaduf using Lego.

Could you challenge your children to design their own Lego shaduf and create a set of instructions for this?
