Forest School: Rock Cairns
Cairns are man-made towers of natural stones, usually built as a landmark or a memorial.
Gather a range of flat rocks and pebbles in different sizes, and then stack them in order, with the largest at the bottom and the smallest at the top.
Can you make changes to the structure of your cairn, such as using a foundation of lots of smaller stones, and see if it still stands?
Experiment with finding the stones’ balancing points to see how tall you can make your cairn.
