Building Our Ideas Through Architecture

Architecture Inquiry
Exploring Our Ideas Around Buildings
This inquiry encompassed many areas of our classroom. The children's interest in constructing during their play initiated a discussion into deeper thinking about their work between Miss Virban and my self.  After presenting their ideas and wonderings to us, we developed learning opportunities to extend their exisiting knowledge around this topic. It was well recieved by the children and they built more than just structures through our explorations. The children came to better understand familiar buildings in their environment and famous buildings from around the world. They demonstrated creativity, design skills, problem solving, communication skills when sharing their ideas and so much more. We hope you enjoy taking a look at our documentation pages!
