• Photocopy posters (see overleaf)
• Divide the Unit into groups of 3/4
• Give each a poster, pencil and paper
• Brownies try to list as many examples of engineering as possible that they can see
• Bring Brownies back into Pow -Wow

 The intention is not for the Brownies to be absolutely precise in their answers but to get them thinking, seeing and questioning
 Leader shares typical examples.
