Fifth Grade Paper Castles

As Fifth graders are finishing their chalk Family pictures, they are moving on to Castles. The are first drawing castles in their sketch books, from pictures I printed out, to learn what architecture defines a castle. Then they get paper, glue and scissors. Without any instruction, they are problem solving to create a 3-D castle, and keep it standing. Some students are working in pairs. There is much collaboration and learning from each other! These students will progress to clay castles in a week or two.
