60 degrees in January? We'll take it! In the outdoor classroom, Carl, Jay, Cassius and Mac created a very cool structure that attached to the pirate ship. The structure was used as a small store where they sold small bags or large hunks of steak! Other friends worked with mosaic materials to create patterns and designs on pieces of wood.
We presented a new construction challenge in the little studio this afternoon:
Using found materials (bark, blocks, fabric, wire, corks, metal etc.), can you create a duck?
Although a little hesitant at first, Carl, Cassius, Jay and Mac began by combing through materials. Carl and Cassius created ducks that were 3D, working with different wooden shapes to form the body, neck and head.
Cassius: Hey, this one (circular block) looks a little like a head.
Mac and Jay created versions of the duck that lay flat.
The boys had to stretch their imaginations and think a little more abstractly for this challenge. We think they were pretty impressed with their results!
As always, message center and small building were popular areas this afternoon as well. Cassius created a patterned tower using Jenga blocks and smaller wooden arch-shaped blocks.
