Trench Models

After learning about World War I and researching what the trenches were like, some children decided to create some models for their homework. Why not try to make your own?

From Wendy Graham...

"Both of the boys used air dry clay which took a long time to dry. They looked into what trenches were like and how soldiers lived in them.

They both decided to make the trenches. Once dry they painted. My son Kieran used matchsticks and picture wire to make the barbed wire and fake snow to make it look cold.

Jaedan used some of his toy soldiers to help measure the height / depth of the trench. He then used card for the floor boards. They both found strong cardboard the best thing to use as a base."
