The Magic Tree House / Read It-Build It Contest . Have you ever read a book, then wanted to build something from it out of Lego? In November, I gave students at my school that opportunity. . Several months ago, I wanted to build a literature-related Lego creation to put in my school's library display case. When I spoke with our librarian, she helped me come to the conclusion that students should be involved, which led to the idea for a contest. The main idea of the contest was to read a book, then build a scene from it. I gave some size parameters, and a deadline, and it was set. What's a contest without prizes? One prize was awarded to the winner at each grade level, thanks to a generous donation from my school's PTA. Twenty-four students entered, and I expect and even bigger turn-out next year. Interestingly, there were three girl winners. I built four entries that matched the students' criteria. Here's the Magic Tree House. The pictures are terrible, I know - I shot them in the library. Building this in September, it felt strange to be making another tree house. I had just build Maxwell and Pugsy's Treetop Hanger in August! The scene above shows Jack crossing the ice, and it's from "Polar Bears Past Bedtime." Making the ice was one of my favorite parts of the project. Here's a scene from "Midnight on the Moon." And here's the island from "Pirates Past Noon." This project was the inspiration for my group Lego in the Classroom, a group for educators and anyone who works with children.
