When I was a kid, the only resources available for school projects were the World Book Encyclopedias. Today encyclopedias are now Google searches. For my daughter’s 4th grade Alamo project, we got ideas off the Internet. So for all you parent surfers out there who need ideas and help for your child’s 4th grade Alamo project, here are the steps Caitlyn took in her assignment.
4th Grade Alamo Project: Step I – Alamo Research
- Caitlyn research historical pictures and ideas. We did google picture searches on “Alamo.”
- Caitlyn brain stormed and listed all the materials she would need.
a. Foam board
b. Gray clay
d. Popsicle sticks
e. Toy soldiers & canons
f. Fake grass
g. Construction paper
h. Shoe or Boot box
4th Grade Alamo Project Step II – Alamo Boot/Shoe Box
- Caitlyn cut the lid a boot box in the shape of the front Alamo chapel.
- Caitlyn glued the boot box to a foam board and covered the box and lid with clay.
4th Grade Alamo Project Step III – Alamo Clay Covering & Painting
- Caitlyn rolled clay into four polls then painted the windows and door.
- Caitlyn added brown construction paper, fake grass, toy soldiers, and toy canons to finish out the project!
Good luck and happy building!
Tell me about your Alamo project? Dads, what other building projects have you done with your kids?
