Building a brick wall!
yes, we used cement!
As part of our inquiry of ' How things grow" a child said
"houses grow" which led us to look at how houses are built . we built clay house making clay bricks and realised, wow! building takes a long time. We then decided to create a wall with real bricks and cement . We mixed cement .gathered all our bricks( left over pavers) and set about building a wall.
The Children were so engaged in mixing the cement and carefully pl;acing bricks making sure they were straight and that they had enough cement to hold it down.
It took negotiation, co-operation and team work to get our wall up.
Here it stands!
