In this lesson I would have a class of foundation phase students create a home for ‘stickman’ (y blocks high by x blocks wide)
January 17, 2018
Students think about what resources would be available to make stickman a house (wood/planks/leaves etc.)
What tools would be needed to collect these resources?
Think about the natural elements like wind and rain, (would that keep stickman warm/dry?)
Students find an ideal location for their home
Students consider natural elements
Students build a home for stickman that is no more than 10 blocks long, by 10 blocks wide, by 5 blocks high.
Students build a shelter that includes walls and a roof
Students all have a role in making stickman’s house
Students make a house within the given measurements
