I loved the role as a designer activity. The first graders who used it loved it, and they did an amazing job. The perfect activity to complement our learning on Mary Blair.
Being a big Mary Blair and Disney fan, it was a great opportunity to utilize this resource. Their Castles were amazing because of the engagement shown by students.
