Stacking boxes in preschool

My early childhood students have been learning about houses as they talk about their families and who lives in their houses with them. They enjoyed stacking different size boxes. We focused on having a strong foundation on the bottom so the box towers stayed up. They learned quickly that the big boxes need to go on the bottom and get smaller as they built up to the top. They even learned that some boxes could fit inside of others while they were stacking.

    we love stacking boxes, then we usually end up playing bowling with them to see how they all fall down :)

    They’ve had fun with the boxes this week and learned a lot about building, too. Friday we are going to finish out our building houses theme by using the boxes to make a box clubhouse. Should be funny.
