We are well on our way into the Machine unit that Hunter has chosen to study. I found this graphic the other day (I can’t located the actual link to this actual graphic but searching ‘construction machines clipart’ brings up a lot of great options. I printed it out, attached it to folded up cardboard, and had the intentions of having the kids build a construction site out of Legos, magnet tiles, or blocks and then use these cardboard ‘machines’ in their scenes. They weren’t really into that idea so I set the machines aside, knowing we could put them to good use later on in the week. Sure enough, we came up with ‘Machine Math!’
His math skills are building (haha, pun!) every day which is so fun to see happen right before our eyes.
