Kinder Lesson Combines Geometry, Art, English, and Critical Thinking

In a fine example of cross-subject instruction, our Kindergarten teacher finished off a math component with a hands on project.  Parent volunteers and scholars wrapped up their math lesson on geometry by doing some building!  This project brought together teamwork, critical thinking, and planning, as well as math, art, vocabulary and spelling.
First, students planned out the design of castle, exploring which 3 dimensional figures were more stable for base structures and how to think critically as a group and plan what type of structure they could build with the pieces they were given.  Later, came windows, doors, etc.  Finally, castle parts were identified and labeled, introducing the students to new vocabulary, definitions and spelling words.  Success!!
