The Eiffel Tower

I brought a mini statue of the Eiffel tower in the classroom and sat it on the block shelf. As soon as we went into our center time the children were drawn to the replica tower. The kids have used it in their block play and discussed how it was built, giving detail to the levels and design used by Gustave Eiffel over 100 years ago. I thought it was really cool when Arelli found the Eiffel tower in a book and came to the conclusion that they were same. As the French would say, bon travail Areli
