Watt, Daniel H.; And Others
Presented are building activities, for elementary school children, using a variety of different materials. Weak materials, such as clay, straws and pins, paper tubes and index cards, are used as examples; structures built with these materials are displayed in photographs and discussed. Problems are suggested from which additional activities can be structured by teachers and/or students. Ways to extend building activities in the direction of large-scale construction are also described. (CS)
