Documenting Building

Documenting Building

Learning Goals: Metacognition, Visual Representation, Scaling, Vocabulary, STEM

    • Offer students materials and blocks of all types to build and create freely. 
    • After building time, instruct students to leave their creations and not put the blocks/materials away yet.
    • Provide students with paper and writing materials and have them draw out their building to document it. 
    • Encourage students to get as much detail as possible so they remember what they built! 
    • Afterwards, have students share their drawings with the class. Encourage them to explain different parts of their sketch. 
    • As an extension: have students label their documented sketches with words to help offer description.
