Imperfect Structures

The culminating (final) task in the inquiry on structures I explored with my class was for them to design and create a structure with recyclable materials.

The children enjoyed the building of their designs.

And lovingly painted their creations.

The structures may be imperfect but in my students’ imaginations these creations are beautiful.

Do you enjoy creating with recyclable materials?

Building a Cityscape

As you know, the construction in my neighbourhood is ongoing. Cranes are often seen behind buildings and trees.

Walking past another site, I see the trucks and drills that make continous noise throughout the day.

Looking at yet another construction site, I notice that the outside of this condo is almost done.

I know the changes and noise will not end with this condo’s completion as notices displayed on various buildings in the area suggest that condo construction will be continuing for many years to come.
