Jack and the Beanstalk - Day 3 - Mark Day School

"Collaborate and make friends." Its such a treat to see this crew wholeheartedly embrace this important tinkering school goal. We've witnessed so many examples of collaboration and friendship this week - and its only Wednesday! Tinkering is a blast, but when we collaborate while we tinker, magic happens!

Taelon and Davy carefully help each other line up and attach the hinges for the popup book.

And voila! - our pages turn!

All hands on deck! When everyone has a job and helps each other, building is so much easier and fun too.

The maze, ladder, and tunnel took a lot of wood and other materials to build, so our tinkerers had lots of time to practice cutting.

Milo attaches a beam on the support structure for the jumping wolf.

The wolf is alive! Look out! (Btw is it just me or does it look like a wolf in sheeps clothing?)

Arthur attaches a fence post for the giant maze.

Check out Theo's spider that climbs up a tree with a pulley! We have some great engineers in our group this week! 

The wild and whimsical world of Jack and the Beanstalk is coming to life before our eyes. These tinkerers are so excited to share their work with their parents and the rest of the world in just a couple days!

Check out all the photos from the week on our Flickr page!
