Construction Center
Objectives (based on the TEKS, Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills)
*TLW build a foundation of basic understanding of patterns, relationships, geometry, and spatial reasoning as well as measurement

own structures.

We provide: unit blocks, Legos, Lincoln Logs, Tinkertoys,
Marbleworks, etc.  Students provide the imagination and

After each building is complete, the "architects" record the
plans (detailed drawing/"blueprints") in the construction
journal.  Some students will even use the journal as a
starting point- using the blueprint to
recreate a building
instead of creating their own.
