Making Cars and Going to the Drive In

Isabelle’s Mum comes to our class to help us with our work. She helped us to make some cars. We used cardboard boxes, paper plates, paper, glue and paint. We had to decide what colours to paint our cars. Our cars were big enough for us to sit in. We had number plates on the back and the front of our cars. We used our initials as part of our number plate. Then we had to choose our three favourite digits and make the biggest number we could to be the rest of our number plate.

At the Drive In

We talked about how people used to use their cars to go to the Drive-In to watch a movie. We thought is would be a great idea to drive our cars to the hall and watch a movie. We watched Over The Hedge. We had rainbow popcorn, chocolate brownies, chips, Tic Toc biscuits, lamingtons and a drink while we sat in our cars to watch the movie.

Watching the Movie

Do you remember visiting a Drive-In to watch a movie? Have you made a pretend car? What did you use?

  1. Dear Preps
    We loved your cars and ideas. We have made a few cardboard cars in the past but never been to a drive in with chips and brownies and drinks and other food. We wish we were there with you because it looked fun and interesting.
    Did you work in pairs or on your own?

  2. Hello Prep/1 H
    Some of us have made a box car. We used cardboard and paper plates. Emily put chairs in her car. Thomas put some lights on his car. Katya put a cup holder inside the car. Gracie put a boot in her car.

    Did you like the movie? What was the best part?
