It all began when some students built and drew pictures of castles, and there were talks about Elsa, Anna and castles. From these tiny seeds, our castle inquiry began this week! This is what we have learned and done for our class inquiry into castles so far:
1. The students brainstormed some names that they want to call their Castle (we were planning to transform our House/Dramatic Centre into a Castle) and in the end the majority voted to make a castle for a king and a queen.
2. Students looked at books and had mini discussions with teachers about castle life and how castles looked.
3. Students began to help in building our castle…
-making the castle tower
-painting bricks for the castle wall
-building the castle brick wall
-helping to make the drawbridge for the castle by holding the box steady while Ms. Cheung cuts it
