Write about the adventures one of your toys might have around the house.


Research toys from the past. How are they similar/different from the toys we play with now? Why do you think this might be?

Try sorting these old and new toys. What do you notice?

Design a toy! Think about what would make a good toy. Draw and label it. Write a sentence about what it would do. You could use the template below to help.
