    by building do you mean constructing, or the study of a house, office?

    i'm assuming construction, but study of the house/office is a good perspective to look at too

    Okay--here is a big project idea. Find a construction project close by that you can take the children to several times.

    Talk about what you see. It is great if you can watch them pour the foundation--cause concrete leads to a whole bunch of related activities. 1. the truck--delivery people 2. how does concrete harden? 3. What is it make of? 4. What is a foundation?

    Houseplans--maps--blueprints.

    See how the ideas just flow.


    Make a gingerbread house--use graham crackers--and lots of frosting.
