Lots of sugar cubes White crafts glue or a glue gun with ample glue gun sticks A piece of cardboard or heavy paper to build the castle on Optional: toothpicks and material to make flags and banners (paper or felt.) If sugar cubes are hard to locate, or if you just want to use other materials you can build with cardboard, Popsicle sticks, toothpicks, marshmallows or anything your student brings to class. We are very flexible.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
