Building the “Great Wall” of China

Building the Great Wall of China with brown bags is a great collaborative project.  Today the class worked together to create a wall as long as they could.  It required placing the bags side by side.  The children had to make decisions about which directions the wall would travel.

There were challenges.  The paper bags fell over very easily.  Teams of children had to work together to repair places the wall tumbled.  In the end – a running wall was built from within the classroom to the next level of the school.  It was exciting and easy to remove!
