MATHEMATICS/BLOCK BUILDING LESSON
Encourage cooperative learning and greater complexity by grouping four students together to make one building. Leave the structure standing for a day if possible. Photograph. When it’s time to tear it down, have the students count the blocks and categorize them according to size and shape. Create a real graph by lining them up on the floor. A pictorial graph can be done next by using black construction paper cut-outs and arranging them on a large sheet of white paper. Save the information so constructions made by other groups can be compared. Who had more/less blocks? Etc.
