What material could I use to build a wall?

In this lesson, we will be discussing different materials and their properties. We will be analysing different objects and identifying the material’s properties. We will be building and creating mini walls and using them in our experiment in the next lesson, 'Is the Wall I've Built Waterproof?'. If you would like to take part in this lesson you can choose to build all or 1 wall. You will need either playdough, hay or straw, twigs or lolly sticks, sugar cubes, plastic bricks, some glue or some sticky tape. If you do not have these things, don’t worry because I will be conducting the experiment for you to see.
