Children (3 - 5 years)
Help your child discover what is the same and what is different about the structures that people live and work in.
As you walk around your neighborhood with your child:
- Talk about how structures are the same or different.
- Notice different shapes in features such as windows and doors.
- Notice different machines and materials used in buildings.
- Notice different tools used for building structures.
Together learn about basic building concepts and how different houses and structures are built. Then plan and build your own structures.
