The Backyard Build: The Engineering Behind the Story

Making a plan

When you want to build something, it’s important to have a plan.

Choosing materials

Materials have different properties that make them useful for different tasks.

Problem solving

When you want to make something, think about the problems first, then find different solutions to fix them.

Let’s look at some of the problems Suzy and Max had to solve in the story.

  • Before they fixed the swing, what did Suzy and Max have to decide first?
  • What did Suzy use to make a seat for the swing?
  • Why did Max decide the chain was better than the rope?
  • How did Suzy and Max measure the plank of wood?
