BLOCK TRAINS AND TOWERS
Children naturally enjoy making trains and towers out of blocks. Rather than fight this tendency, let’s use it to help lead the children’s understanding of themselves, God, and how God has made numbers work!
Print out Block Train and Tower Templates, cut and laminate each one, then put in your block center for children to use to guide their learning. Also use the learning conversations within this lesson plan to aid you in guiding the children’s thinking about themselves, God, and how numbers and patterns work.
3 STEPS IN THE ACTIVITY
Step 1: Print the Block Towers and Trains Templates
Step 2: Laminate and place in the block center
Step 3: Play with the children and use the conversations for learning
