Building Plans

This week we are dwelling inside the story of the Three Pigs.  This week I will be posting some of my activities for this fairy tale.  First, this is such a perfect story to bring the vocabulary and work of architects.  I have a wonderful book called “Homes” that talks about architects and the planning of a building.

Here is a super idea for blocks!  I put out clipboards with paper and it is a requirement that the children draw a “blue print” of what they plan to build.  It is so much fun!

 Student drawing his “plans” for block building.
 Students using their “plans” to build a structure.
 Here is a student’s blue print.
 Here is his finished structure!
I also put a “city blocks” set out in the block center so children can build a community.
