What Can you do with a Cardboard Box?

Nothing sparks a child's imagination quite like a cardboard box! Recently Mrs. Schell’s Kindergarten students put this theory to the test. For inspiration, they read the book “"What to do With a Box" by Jane Yolen and Chris Sheban and then the kids took it from there and were off and running!

Using the 4 C’s of STEM: Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking, the kids talked about what they might create with their boxes, planning and assembling supplies and brainstorming about how to make their creations. They spread out across the classroom and came up with the most amazing projects. Everything from a doll castle to the solar system, a race car to a spacesuit, and a bat cave to a buddy bench – the kids did a magnificent job! Oh, what fun!
