Inventions Key and Swimsuits for Chickens!

We really enjoyed reading Funny Frank by Dick King Smith. It is from our school library. Frank is born a cockerel but he wants to be a duck. A little girl finds him and wants to help him so she asks her mum to make something fro Frank to swim like a duck.

We used the invention key to design our own suits for Frank. We used labels to show the parts and designed many different suits that we thought would work for Frank.

Enjoy the slideshow.

  1. Kia ora Room 16,
    Your designs are so creative. What materials were you planning to use to make Frank's suits?

  2. Hi Guys,

    Great job! Room 7 have also done the Invention Thinking keys!
    I think using the Thinking Keys really lets us dream big!

    Thank you for sharing! Can't wait to show my class what you have done!
    Bryan :)
