Activity 8

About the Activity

Build your own Scaled City!


Have fun using our templates to make City of London post boxes, buses and buildings! Use the fact sheets and materials provided to learn about scale and proportion along the way.

Part 1: at different scales, create (and colour in) a 3D post box and London bus and compare alongside matching cut-out scaled people.

Part 2: at different scales, create three different City buildings as 2D ‘popups’. Add the materials and textures by adding colour and/or collage.

This activity is great for all the family, and both Part 1 and 2 Activities takes 30 minutes+.
