Davenport Public Library Block Party

April 21st-May 2nd, 2015

Elementary students were invited to come to the Davenport Public Library Block Party. Kids got the opportunity to explore structural building and designs concepts and to use any building materials that were available to make tall structures.

They explored what makes some structures more stable and compared the various types of materials used for building. Attendees had as much demolishing their structures as building them!

The Traveling Lego Kit was generously provided by the Washington State Library and Timberland Regional Library.

Kids also challenged one another with Lego Building Challenge where they drew out a random challenge card and had to build what was suggested on the card. Among these creations: houses, space ships, skate parks, a flower, and a pirate ship.

The last hour was spent free building or making your own mini figure. Later programming included stop animation with the free Lego Movie Maker App, Blindfold Block Building, “Around the Block” Poetry, and other activities.
