Glue Gun Construction

The glue guns and a refreshed collection of soft and hard, natural, and other materials have added a new dimension to construction over last term and again this term.
The glue guns themselves take practice to master, the cold pack sometimes needed for fingers that have had glue dropped onto them. From simple glueing of materials onto a base, to more complex structures, children explore pattern, design, balance and direction as they problem solve how to make their structures stable.
Current events have been explored with an oil sucker upper being constructed to save the birds from the gulf oil spill.
