As various groups of students used the boxes to create rockets, aliens, robots, and space stations, other groups busied themselves creating elaborate buildings with the blocks, experimenting with colours, reading, or playing with the cars and airplanes.
It was fascinating to watch the students create a perfect triangle to fit their rocket ship, build robots, and find that mixing colours creates new colours. "Red marker and white chalk make pink. Black marker and white chalk make grey. Blue and red marker make purple."
We had such an amazing day!
