Hollow Block Provocations


Recommended Posts

Hi

Does anyone have any photos of models the children have made using the large hollow blocks.  I'm planning on creating a book of ideas to give our, mainly boys, a starting point on how to use the blocks in their play.  Thanks if anyone can help, if not i'll stay and play after work and get building.

No book - but I did make a collage display of various buildings, bridges etc - just using google images - mounted on a board that was placed in block play area - I'm now wondering where that is now - back of a cupboard I suspect - hmm would be good to get that out again :)

I always offer other resources alongside blocks - figures, animals, vehicles and so on, that seems to encourage play.....

I did the same as @sunnyday in that I put photos of real life constructions (although mine were laminated and put near the construction equipment because wall space was very limited). 

I also made a few examples of the pictures using the different construction things and took photos of them to help give them ideas. They always did better than me though (or at least that's what I told them!)

I did this too. I also added pictures of the pieces I used (all laid out like a flat pack)  and put these on the reverse. The children loved using these as a 'challenge cards' to recreate the picture.   Went down really well- especially  in the last half of the summer term when we started making more difficult challenges.
