3, 2, 1... Build it Fun!

On November 11th, at Oakmont Elementary, Ms. Pollyann Giffin’s preschool classroom took part in COSI’s 3,2,1…Build It program. This program was provided to the elementary school on behalf of PNC through PNC’s Grow Up Great Grant.

Children were very ecstatic to act as construction workers and take on building and measuring challenges.

Below, children have just put on their construction vests and are choosing tools to use for measuring.
