Great Feats Of Construction 👷‍♀️


Another picture quiz, just for fun.

You might like to start the proceedings by asking members what is the most impressive building or construction they ever saw?

As we are going to be talking about bridges and towers, ask if anyone has got a fear of heights (acrophobia)?


The quiz comes in 4 parts, 10 questions and a song each. You might want to run it over two CST sessions.


Take time to pause for story telling if members have visited any of these places.
