The Great Wall of China

We had a great day today exploring the Great Wall of China. First we shared what we already knew about the wall, then read a great book that was filled with tons of important information about the wall. We used that information to start working on various rotations including documenting the steps that were taken to build each wall, learning about the workers who built it and brainstormed other creative ways to solve the problems facing China instead of building the wall. We spent the last 30 minutes completing a challenge where each group had only tape and index card and had to build the longest free standing wall that they could. A challenging day indeed!
