Great idea to video the progress. Love the idea and I think the students will really buy into it. Thanks for the encouragement.

I loved this challenge and definitely recommend others doing it as well. The Bloxes are from Amazon and they gave an educator discount, wahoo.

I enjoyed watching the video. Thanks for sharing. How many pieces did each student start out with? Maybe one piece to combine with 5 classmates to make one blox (it says 6 pieces = one blox)? Or perhaps each student had his/her own 6 pieces to make one blox? Thanks.

A little bit about the bloxes. I contacted the people behind Bloxes last year through Amazon and asked whether they gave an educator's discount. They did then. I then ordered enough pieces to make 36 bloxes because I wanted them to be able to build an arm chair.

Each child was given 6 pieces to start on Friday - enough to make one whole blox. As kids finished they were given more pieces to make more. I had ordered 4 boxes for the class, enough to make 8 bloxes from each box.

I hope that helps.

I agree! This is a wonderful challenge and a lot of fun to watch. Thumbs up for Mrs. Ripp and to her students for working well together to complete the challenge! I wish you all a fantastic year.
