About this Place Of Interest

The ruins of Wat Maha That was once a grand temple in the ancient island city of Ayutthaya. Part of the Ayutthaya World Heritage Historical Park, the temple now stands as a relic of a proud city lost to the ravages of time. The crumbling bricks and decapitated statues bring to mind adventures such as those of Indiana Jones, and visitors can easily imagine themselves transported back in time to the shadows of a lost civilisation.

About this Learning Experience

In this Learning Experience, learn about the type of rocks used in architecture and the effects of weathering on ancient historical buildings. This Learning Experience is suitable for students Secondary 3 Note: This Learning Experience will require you to prepare no-bake and baked clay at home. You will need to bring the clays to the point of interest to carry out an experiment. Materials: 1. 1 cup of flour (140g) 2. 105g of salt 3. 1 cup of water (225 ml) 4. 2-4 tablespoon of cooking oil 5. Oven Method 1 (For the No-bake Clay): 1. Add the flour and salt into a mixing bowl. 2. Pour the water into the salt and flour and mix. 3. Stir until everything is combined into a dough-like mixture. 4. Add about 2-4 tablespoon of oil. This softens the clay and prevents it from becoming crumbly. 5. Using your hands, press and knead the mixture until it turns into a dough. Method 2 (For baking) : 1. Preheat the oven to 130 degree celsius. 2. Place the dough on a tray and put it into the oven for 15- 20 minutes. 3. Upon removing it from the oven, let it cool for 20-30 minutes. You can refer to the link below for a better understanding about clay-making. Happy baking! https://www.wikihow.com/Make-Clay
