Be an Architect....Just Like Iggy Peck! Let’s Design 3D Miniature Treehouses
In this one time course, we’ll read “Iggy Peck, Architect” by Andrea Beaty and learn what it takes to be a master builder. For our STEAM activity, we’ll use a set of different materials to create miniature treehouses.
While I read the story, I will ask the children different questions and encourage them to make connections to their own lives. Then, each student will make an individual plan; I will tell them to draw and write about a treehouse that they would like to design themselves if given the opportunity. Once they finish, I will ask if anyone would be willing to share their ideas with the group. Lastly, they will use their plans to design their miniature treehouses out of a wide variety of materials....
I would like the kids to be in charge of gathering and choosing their own craft supplies to make their project as creative as possible (string or yarn, pipe cleaners, Pom poms, popsicle sticks, etc). The kids will definitely need cardboard or card-stock to make their miniature treehouses super sturdy. See if you can collect one or more toilet paper rolls to have on hand that will serve as the “tree trunk”. An alternative is to use one or more sheets of card-stock and rolling them up into tubes. Here’s a list of other materials that are necessary: 1) duct tape 2) glue 3) sharpies or markers 4) scissors I will provide the book.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
