How are bricks made?

Two children meet Curious Cat, an animated cat who shows them how bricks are made. The children see diggers extracting clay from a quarry and the kinds of things which can be made from clay. They meet an expert who shows them the process of making bricks, including getting rid of all the lumps in the clay, adding water to the clay to make it softer so that it can be squeezed into a mould, the importance of sand to help the clay out of the mould and to give the brick its colour, drying and firing the bricks in a kiln. The children also make their own bricks by hand.
