Architectural House Tour

Last week, WFS kindergarteners took an "architectural neighborhood walk" throughout Alapocas as a culmination of their month-long house unit!
Students have been studying houses, the materials they are made of, the different structures and designs, the number of skilled tradespeople that is takes to build a house from the architect, to the builders, to the electricians, plumbers, painters, all the way to the inspectors who finalize that a house has been built to code in order to sell. The architectural tour allowed the children to count all of the various features that houses have such as the materials they are made of (stone, brick, wood, stucco), bay windows, dormers, columns, detached garages, symmetrical designs, etc.
The next time you are in the lower school, please check out the children's houses in the lobby that they made from recyclable materials. The students were very creative with their unique landscaped properties and custom homes!
