Ideas over time: tallest buildings

A simple card game for children learning about the physical properties of materials.

A simple game for KS1 children who are learning about the physical properties of materials and how they are suited for different purposes. In playing the game, children will develop a historical awareness of how our scientific understanding of forces, materials and structures has changed since the Ancient Egyptians built the first pyramids. We have provided instructions for the game and three sets of ‘cards’ which need to be printed with the building and height on one side and the date on the reverse.
