House Construction

Today 2nd graders got a chance to create their own houses…well, miniature wooden houses is a more accurate description!  I love this project because we have an opportunity to discuss so many things (design, form, sculpture, texture) and students can directly apply the knowledge. These houses were first created on paper, then students sanded their houses and a few even had a chance to apply a coat of paint. Cannot wait to see their designs come to life.
