Extending this activity

  • -Investigate how many different towers can be built using ten blocks. Are they all the same height?

    -Read the book "Jack the Builder" by Stuart J. Murphy. In Jack's imagination, two blocks are a robot and three blocks are a hot dog stand. Count with your child as Jack adds a block on each page to create something new.

Adjust for an older child

Once the older child has built a block tower, ask the child to build another tower using the same number of blocks. This time, challenge the child to build it in such a way that the tower stays up.

Adjust for a younger child

Ask the child to stack five blocks. Count with the child as he or she stacks each block and again after the blocks are stacked.
