What was your first thought when you read that? 

Don’t think about it too long, I want your first answer, your first impression, what you thought when you read that you had to build a house with only 3 blocks?

    My first thought was, “That’s not enough! How could they build a house from three block?” Of course, my second thought was, “depends on the blocks and the child.”

      That’s a similar thought to me but I also though ‘what about windows and doors’. I’m not a teacher and have had no training in this area, however I was led to believe this is something sometimes asked of children to see what they do – observation.
      I’d love to see how they react to that 🙂

    My first thought was “what shapes are the blocks?” 🙂
