Block Building in Kindergarten

The children in C2 have been working hard on building tall, elaborate block structures in the unit block area. They are excited to see how high they can build while keeping the structure sound and steady.

There is a great deal of mathematical thinking going during the planning and building of structures. The children have to choose which blocks to use by exploring length, size, width, proportion, symmetry and patterns as they problem solve and try to balance one block on top of another to create their masterpieces.
