We thought about what we could do with the amazing HOLLOW BLOCKS we fundraised for last year and the staff room that was being underutilized - we decided to create a fabulous new block room! The classes will get the room for 1 week at a time so that they can have time to plan and build something over a week span. After this they will be encouraged to sketch and photograph their creations to add to the wall of fame.
We love blocks at The Co-op School. Here are a few articles on why blocks are so cool:
