Second Grade Castles

Second graders learned about the differences between castles and palaces via a Power Point recently. Palaces were homes for royalty. Castles were fortified and trained soldiers and knights.
We practiced drawing castles, with towers and battlements, draw bridges, moats and gated doors. Then we enlarged these onto really big paper. The next week students arrived to plates of black  liquid tempera paint and large lego-type blocks. They used these to print  stones for their castles.  We have more to do, so come back and check out  what gets created next!
