Children love building with bricks! The task cards correlate with the NGSS Engineering Standards. Students naturally think about the properties of materials (color, size, and shape) that will best complete the challenge. They also take apart and rebuild to make their creation even better! This the perfect time to talk about steps in the engineering and design process! The cards can be used whole group, with partners, or at centers. They will also keep your early finishers engaged in a thoughtful way.
This bundle includes the September Getting to Know You Brick Building Challenges, and the Fall, Winter, and Spring/Summer Brick Building Challenges resources.
There are worksheets at three different levels, so students can draw or photograph, write about, and/or measuring their creations. There is a cover page included in case you decide to make their pages into a book.
A tips and suggestions page is also included.
YOU NEED building bricks. You can also use pattern blocks!
