During our summer break I gathered as much recycled material as I could and brought it back to school with me. With this material, we created a city! I started the kids off with a cardboard box base and a few simple structures. After that, it was all them! I couldn’t believe how many ideas they came up with as individuals and as a group. This was a true collaborative project. After it dried, we were able to use it as a play structure for our people and animal toys.
It’s going to stay in our classroom a little while longer so be sure to check it out next time you’re here! I’m sure the kids will want to tell you all about it.
