In this four-day lesson, learners identify three-dimensional forms in castle design, research different parts of the castle with a focus on their uses, and design and enlarge a banner for the great hall. Small groups build castles using geometric solids, such as cubes and cylinders. They understand that the size, form, and design of the castleäóťs parts were influenced by their uses. Learners also practice calculating perimeter and area and design a personal coat of arms for their families to scale. This activity is featured on pp.39-40 (part of a lesson that begins on page 35) of the "LEGOŒŹ Castle Adventure" unit of study for grades K-6.

In this three/four-day lesson, learners calculate perimeters and areas and draw the castle plan to scale. They develop a timeline outlining the construction of a castle and build catapults, a primary weapon of castle destruction. They understand the skill and effort involved not only in building castles but also in destroying them. This activity is featured on pp.42-44 (part of a lesson that begins on page 35) of the "LEGOŒŹ Castle Adventure" unit of study for grades K-6.
