Construction on a Larger Scale

Last week, the children of Room 3 visited a construction site to see if they could gather any ideas to use for their building projects in the classroom. They were eager to take some of what they observed and implement it into their investigations. The children had been building on a smaller scale, using Legos, KEVA blocks and Magnet Tiles, but after seeing construction take place on a larger scale they began to broaden their ideas as to what could be used as foundations in the room (tables, chairs, boxes, larger building blocks). They also enjoyed using the model cars to recreate the actions of the construction vehicles.
