Imagine building a replica of the Great Wall of China! Start with one section and add to it all year as you learn more about this immense country.
The Great Wall of China is one of the most remarkable structures ever built. It runs from East to West across the country for 4,163 miles (6,700 km). The Great Wall was built by thousands of people in many small, unconnected sections for protection against invaders. The walls were joined after the unification of China, under the Qin Dynasty Emperor Qin Shihuang. The Great Wall of China is now a favorite tourist attraction. Find out more about how it was built and what it looks like. Prepare to build the Great Wall with a team of classmates!
To make a model of a section of the Great Wall, use Crayola Twistables® to decorate construction paper to look like rocks. You could even do crayon rubbings for a textured effect.
Cut the rock paper to fit empty tissue boxes with Crayola Scissors. Glue it to the boxes with Crayola School Glue. Place the boxes in a meandering line. Join sections with rock-decorated paper.
People can walk on the fortified walkway on top of the Great Wall, where they can see miles of the countryside. Cover your boxes with paper decorated with Crayola Twistables® to resemble this path.
With Crayola Model Magic, create stone borders for both sides of the walkway. Air-dry the borders overnight. Glue them in place. Air-dry the glue.
Use Neon Model Magic to create a dramatic landscape. To create large mountains, for example, begin with an armature of aluminum foil to provide a firm, lightweight foundation. Build your mountain on top of it. Arrange the landscape and glue pieces in place. Air-dry the glue.
Imagine how it might feel to be walking the Great Wall! Share your excitement with other students.
