MinniArchitects – Plan a Playground
November 9–December 21
Why just play at a playground when you can plan one? This pencil-wielding crew of MinniArchitects will apply basic architectural design concepts as they first plan on paper, then move to actually constructing playground-inspired projects. Working with a mix of 2-D and 3-D materials – including paint, cardboard, clay, and textured papers – children will be encouraged to partner collaboratively with peers in both problem-solving and analysis. Each architect will advance his or her sense of spatial awareness and develop new creative thinking skills as they invent and build a new playplace!
