Building Fun!

December 16, 2015

The holiday season presents so many interesting things to explore! This month, our students in the Architects & Engineers club have been experimenting with gingerbread houses. Take a little bit of shape recognition, add a dash of spatial relationship development, mix in a whole lot of problem solving and creativity and you’ve got yourself a wonderful learning experience! Candy, icing and gingerbread make it all the better.

Despite the warm temperatures, the children have been thinking about winter and the fascinating world of ice. Holding ice in their hands, blowing on it and sticking it down their shirts (eeek!) were just some of the ways the children tested out their ideas. What made the ice melt faster? What else changed as the ice melted? Could they change it back?

It’s always the season for learning at HeartPrints!
