Blueprints March 27, 2012

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.

Image

Then you need to draw a long rectangle on top of the line.

 

Image

Then you need some tall rectangles on the sides, and some small rectangles for the soldiers to hide behind.

Image

Some more balustrades.

Image

Every castle needs a few flags!

Image

Final touches.

Image

The gate into the castle.

Image

Once the blueprints are made, the building can begin.

Image

The more designs, the more castles.

Image

Each castle needs a knight, with a shield and sword, of course!

Image

More detail to the blueprint, more detail to the castle.

Image

Soon, our castles become vertical.
