Building bricks and mini figures are the perfect way to “hook” and upper elementary writers by allowing them to visualize and plan stories in a hands-on way! Students will explore 12 different writing genres by building, planning, and writing original stories.
All you need for Build a Story are building bricks, baseplates, and mini figures!
