The Newport Giraffes Build Castles

castleThe Giraffes started their castle exploration in November by building castles using different materials such as blocks, Legos, dominoes, bottle caps, cups, and connectors. They continued exploring the outer structures, interior rooms, and various medieval titles such as blacksmith, lords, knights, jesters, and cooks.

They built, drew, and painted numerous castles, and demonstrated increased complexity and creativity over time in their constructions, drawings, and paintings. In January, the Giraffes finished the construction of their life-sized castle inside the classroom, complete with royal thrones, a royal bedroom, and dining hall. They have enjoyed learning about and role playing various characters inside their castle.

For the final phase of the project, the Giraffes wrote their own fairy tale and created their own fairy tale kingdom, which they performed for their parents as the grand finale of their castles project.
