Building Brick Challenge: Make a Face

What You Need:

  • Building bricks of any size and shape


What You Do:

  1. Ask your learner, “Can you make a funny face out of bricks?”
  2. Encourage your child to make a plan. Ask, “How many bricks do you think you will need?” or “ What part of the face do you want to make first?”
  3. Give your child time to create their design. Ask, “Do you need help?” (They should ultimately be doing most of the building.)
  4. Have designers play with their new design. Ask, “What emotion is your face feeling?”
  5. After testing out the design, challenge your learner to think about the ways in which they can adjust their design. Ask, “Is there anything you want to change about the face?”
  6. Challenge designers to share their new designs. They can record a video, or draw a picture of the design and add a few sentences describing it. You can ask and include in your video or article questions, such as "Did you have fun?" and "Does your face have a name?"
