Have a look at a real umbrella, and write an explanation of how it works.
- Who is under the umbrella?
- How long has it been raining for?
- Where is this happening?
- What might happen next?
- What would you ask the person holding the umbrella?
- Test some materials to see how waterproof they are.
- Make your own colourful umbrella image with paper strips.
- Design a new product to keep people dry. What material would you make it out of? What features would you include?
