Kindergarten: Building a Buddy

During literacy, the book Building A Buddy, inspired Kindergarteners to create their own classroom buddy.  They took a trip to the STEM Lab and used their teamwork skills to choose and assemble prototyping materials as a group.  They focused on counting and selecting materials that were the right shapes for their buddy's parts.  In the end, they had a cute new buddy for their classroom, and learned to work together while doing it!
