CES preschool students learn about building

Campbellsville Elementary School preschool students recently learned all about building – and made some creative inventions.

 

In Sherry Cowherd’s class, students are learning to be creative and use their imaginations.

 

Cowherd is using STEAM education – science, technology, engineering, arts and math – to help students learn the concepts they will need when in kindergarten next year.

 

She recently introduced her students to Block City, which is a program that teaches students to use their imaginations and build with everyday objects.

 

Cowherd gave students a pile of ordinary objects, such as boxes, cups, pipe cleaners and more, with only one instruction – to build.

 

Students made ships, castles, tall buildings and much more.
