There is a very cool front view of a house in the book Lentil which was probably built
in the late 1800's in a French architectural style.
We talked about all the things we could see from the illustration
and compared to our own house.
I asked them how they thought a house was built...
lots of ideas and no one knew a plan was involved.
Just so happens we had a set of house plans and the kids LOVED looking at them.
After much discussion and boys deciding they were ready to build :)~
I had each child take their journal and we all drew our house floorplan~
It was a fun time of new vocabulary
and maybe new dreams of what they want to be when they grow up.
Might just have some architects and builders in our future.
