Here is a little taste of what we have been working on in our classroom, and what has led to our interest in building and design. We are going to begin investigating the concepts behind these in the next few weeks.
First, you need a straight edge to draw a horizon line.
Then you need to draw a long rectangle on top of the line.
Then you need some tall rectangles on the sides, and some small rectangles for the soldiers to hide behind.
Some more balustrades.
Every castle needs a few flags!
The gate into the castle.
Once the blueprints are made, the building can begin.
The more designs, the more castles.
Each castle needs a knight, with a shield and sword, of course!
More detail to the blueprint, more detail to the castle.
Soon, our castles become vertical.
