This is the third and final installment of children’s poetic reflections on their architecture projects. To read about the project in its entirety, please use the search term “architecture” in the search window below.
The Big Apartment Building
It’s kind of big and also people who live here don’t have to live in little houses, they can live in big buildings.
And also they don’t have to live out of houses.
It took a long time to build it.
The sides are really big and the building’s really big
There’s lots of places for people to live inside.
Sometimes they have to break it down because it’s not working well.
They make designs so that the building doesn’t fall down
and they glue the bricks so it doesn’t fall down on the people inside.
The Pretty Triangle (A-frame)
There’s a big window.
You slide the door open.
I like that it’s a triangle.
It looks like a face with eyes open or eyes closed.
The Villager Hut
L: It kind of looks like a farm.
T: It would look like a real farm if the windows were down there.
E: It looks like a villager hut from Minecraft.
When the rain falls down
it will fall off onto the roof.
The roof is a sesame circle.
It’s for Lego guys – villagers.
K’s House for my Family
The stairs they go up
And the windows are not square
‘cause they can look out of more places.
The fence has a little door
and they can go
straight to go inside.
The chimney is where Santa goes down.
The roof is made out of paper and the rest is made out of wood.
There’s no ladders to go inside the window ‘cause that would be weird.
I have a chimney.
Santa Claus fell through the window – he’s stuck in there now.
I have a square window.
The door looks like a square
The Playground (an almost haiku)
This is a chimney.
There’s a slide and a diving board.
It’s to play in.
