Contributor Notes
My husband got his third grade Bridges kit and I immediately honed in on the bags of Geoblocks. I convinced him I wouldn’t lose or destroy them if I could use them for a week in my art class. The students were told to construct an actual or fantasy building and then make a drawing of it. Many turned to castle designs. One drawing, not pictured because you can’t see the detail well enough in a photo, had literally hundreds of simple figures amassed outside the gates of the castle. The drawing you see here is particularly interesting because this student did stack up the blocks on the left but used her imagination to balance the sphere on top of the cone.
