Building with Blocks

Our students have been building increasingly complex structures with wooden blocks.  In December, we started using Keva planks that are all uniform in shape and size.  I once asked whether that would restrict creativity by using blocks that are all the same. Now I know that the opposite happens.  Instead of searching for a particular piece, students are focussed on thinking about what they are building and how they will build it.  Keva towers are taller than the children, and we taking slow-motion videos as we knock down the towers.  I will include new photos of Keva towers after we go back to school this week.
