Cullen collects bags of sticks for his family. This is activity helps him cope with missing his family. Ms. Alonza was helping him one day collect his bag of sticks and nature items and a friend joined them. Through conversation and discussions about sticks and branches, the group of children became interested in helping Cullen collect more sticks and then some for themselves.
What can we make with sticks? How can do we use sticks? How can you build with sticks?
Cullen said he would make a rocket. Jaley said she would make a windmill and a flower. Lizeth made a stick person and Sydnie made a letter “T”. Zoe created a house. These creations are displayed in the classroom along with other projects.
The children then decided to make a tower with sticks. Otis said the structure looked like a beaver’s home! The story is just beginning.
