The Great Wall

As we continue our China study, on Friday we read The Great Wall by Leonard Everett Fisher.  I want to make sure that J understands the history of the Great Wall when we visit. Yesterday, J was building with Legos and something was said about building the Great Wall. No, we don't do school on a Saturday but it was one of those teaching moments that you take advantage of when they happen. It didn't take him long and he built this.

That was neater than my other idea of building one using dirt and making clay bricks. Given the fact that we have about 18 inches of snow on the ground finding dirt would be difficult and do we really have time to make clay bricks. I think Legos made a much better Great Wall.
