    The kids experimented with all the materials we put out...tissue and construction paper, scissors, glue, and cotton balls. No two dozers were alike by the end!

    Elevator Song
    Oh, the city is big and the city is grand,
    and there are lots of tall buildings on a little piece of land.
    And we live way up on the 57th floor.
    And this is what we do when we go out the door.

    We take the elevator UP, take the elevator DOWN,
    take the elevator UP, take the elevator DOWN,
    take the elevator UP, take the elevator DOWN,
    and turn around.

    This is the Way We Build
    Sung to the tune of All Around the Mulberry Bush

    This is the way we cut the wood, cut the wood, cut the wood.
    This is the way we cut the wood, when we're building our barn.

    This is the way we...
    hammer the nails...
    stack the bricks...
    paint the walls...
    put up the roof...

    Craft—Dump Trucks
    As you can see, kids customized their trucks with colors and stickers.

    One especially creative builder even modified his pieces to make a front-end loader!
