When I grow up, an architect I will be!
Ask students to collect small, clean boxes such as oatmeal boxes, milk cartons, and cardboard rolls. Try to find sets of matching boxes in several shapes and sizes. Seal boxes and lids with Crayola® School Glue. Dry overnight.
Ask students to sort the sealed boxes by shape, such as cylinders and cubes. Students may also determine which color to paint each type of shape. For example, all cylinders might be blue and all cubes cold be orange.
While wearing Crayola® Art Smocks, students cover their work area with recycled newspapers. Paint all of the boxes using Crayola® Washable Tempera and So Big® Brushes. If painting wax or plastic, adding a squirt of liquid dish detergent to the paint will assist with getting the paint to set. Dry overnight.
Once blocks are dry, students build a structure or design.
Students use Crayola® Write Start® Colored Pencils to sketch their creation on white construction paper. Ask students to attempt to match the pencil color with the block color.
Students count the number and types of blocks used in their creations, such as 2 red cylinders and 3 green triangles.
Students describe how they created their designs. Ask an available adult to document student descriptions.
