The Summer Term - The Big Dip

After an enlightening period learning about everything to do with The Animal Kingdom from the evolution of man to the work carried out by the RSPCA, we now zoom into our new topic, The Big Dip.


Having mind mapped our ideas for this topic we will be studying many roller coasters from all around the world, focussing on how they've changed, why and the types of materials used.


To begin the topic we had discussions based on current rollercoasters in the UK and decided on our own orders for most terrifying based on video clips studied; we were all wrong! Here are the video clips we studied, what order would you put them in?
