Using the cereal boxes, shoe boxes, tissue tubes, telephone wire and anything else they could find, the kids worked in teams to build forts. (Leo, Jonathan and Jose had painted all the boxes with gesso, last week.)
First a discussion of structure
"I'm sure we can work these huge wooden poles somewhere into our fort."
Adding details and architectural elements
Certainly plenty of materials available.
Leo handled any glue gun requests.
This would be a cupcake house. Cupcake shaped, cupcake landscape, cupcake doorknob.
Some forts from Tuesday's class
and every fort needs a functional canon.
