Constructing towers

The Grasshoppers have been exploring with various materials to construct with. 

They explored the environment to look for and gather resources.


Some children worked individually and once resources were gathered they put a plan into action, maintaining focus and concentration.


Other children worked together as a team sharing ideas and thoughts. 


The children used small part items from our curiosity area and larger objects found in our home corner. 


The Grasshoppers decided to make this into a competition to see who could build the tallest tower. 


The children used various techniques and ways to build, understanding the importance of balance and paying attention to details and persisted with the activity when challenges occurred.
