Building Bridges

This week in the K-1 Fall Art Club, we read Iggy Peck, Architect, and then built our own bridges, just like Iggy and his classmates did at the end of the book.  In the story, the bridge is built out of "tree roots and strings, fruit roll-ups and things".  We used pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, string, paper strips, and tape to represent those items.  Like good architecture, the bridges that the J-H students built were useful, sturdy, and delightful!  Look at the use of pattern, texture, color, connections, bracing, and structural reinforcement in their creations. A Hot Wheels car could (and did!) drive across every one of these bridges.  We will read more books from The Questioneers series and work on related projects over the next few weeks.
