Invent a new country 

This activity is all about using your imagination to invent a new country. You could plan your country and then show it in lots of different ways. 

Getting started: 

  • Consider the climate of your new country. This will determine what the landscape is like 
  • Think about where your country will be situated. Will it be large or small? 
  • Think about the landscape of your country. If it is rural it will have more fields, plants, and flowers. If it is populated by more people, it will  have the feel of a town or city 
  • Consider who might live in your country. Could you invent different sorts of people and animals to live there?
  • Research current countries to give you some idea of what your country could be like 

You will need to plan out your ideas using notes before you start the activity  

Completing the activity: 

Once you have decided on your country, you need to think about how you will show your findings. This could take the form of:

  • A painting or drawing of the country and the people who live in it  
  • The writing of a non-chronological booklet (not in time order) 
  • A 3D model of the country

Complete your painting or drawing by: 

  • Drawing an outline of the country 
  • Completing the detail in pencil first 
  • Colouring using different colours to represent different things  
  • You could make your drawing or painting more interesting by labelling the different parts of the country and writing short explanations about  them. 

Writing a non-chronological booklet – think about: 

  • The format of your book. This could take the form of non-chronological booklet with a different page that charts the information about the  features of areas in the country 
  • Using different sub-headings in your booklet such as: climate, landscape, inhabitants (the people that live there), animals, town, cities etc.
  • Taking notes and then organising them into the subheadings - you could make your own planning format to do this
  • Making your booklet more interesting by adding in drawings and diagrams  

A 3D model of your country: 

  • If you are going to create a 3D model of your country, then you could use the following materials: 
  • Card or a hard surface to make the base. An unused tray may be useful, although check with an adult first!
  • Some household items such as plastic tubs that could form the base of mountains.
  • The websites www.redtedart.com  or  https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/guide/how-make-paper-mache  have some useful ideas using papier-mâché, which can be used to  make mountains and boulders if you want to make a 3D model. You will need an adult to help with this as it uses hot water
  • Silver foil for rivers and water etc. 
  • Paint to complete the finish. If you have any, watered down PVA glue can form a useful ‘top’ coat to make sure that your model stays  watertight. You will need an adult to help you with this 

Designing and making the people and animals that live in your country: 

If you are drawing your country, then it will be easy to add in the people and animals that live there. If you are making a model, then you might  like to make 3D models of them. 

You could use: 

  • Plasticine or playdough  
  • Lolly sticks with material or paper added to make the detail

You could also: 

  • Design a new flag for your country. Look at current flags from around the world to give you inspiration • Invent a currency, draw, and explain it (currency is the system of money that is in general use in a country)   

Inventing your new country will help you to: 

  • Use your imagination 
  • Improve your DT skills  
  • Improve your writing skills

Create a piece of artwork out of recycled materials 

 

We have many different objects around us that we recycle. Most of our food comes in different packaging and we have many items around the  home that we have finished with and do not want anymore. 

 

This activity is all about how we can use these objects to make a stunning piece of artwork. Look at the different artwork on the internet that uses  recycled materials to give you inspiration. 

 

When gathering materials for your artwork, always get permission from an adult before you use them.  

 

You could use: 

 

  • Old CDs 
  • Plastic bottles and containers 
  • String, wool, or ribbon
  • Bottle tops (different colours are effective
  • Cards and paper

Think about: 

 

  • How to set out your materials on a background or create them into a 3D sculpture  
  • Using different colours in different ways. You might want to put all the colours together or mix them up to create a different effect  •
  • Creating an object with your materials. Look to nature to get inspiration e.g. butterflies, birds or animals

What you will learn  

 

Creating your recycled artwork will: 

 

  • Improve your imagination  
  • Make you resourceful  
  • Improve your art skills
