This started off with a challenge for the students to build a house for their lost friend, but honestly, I left it pretty open to see what they would come up with and how their play would steer their building. For some activities, I have structure and expectations that I would like to see with outcomes, but other times, I like to give a loose challenge and see where the students take it (especially with the younger students). Some of the students took right away to collecting and building a house, some wanted to explore the outdoor learning area, and some were a bit hesitant on where to begin. It was a great opportunity for the students to learn to work with one another to build something, share resources, and be creative. Plus, we had some beautiful weather, so it was the perfect time to get outside, get a little dirty, and do some serious learning!
