It's Not a Box!!!

What do first graders do with a box and their imagination? Mrs. Hilkert's class enjoyed the book Not a Box with a mystery reader who challenged them to use their imagination and creativity to transform cardboard into whatever they could imagine. Airplanes that became Transformers, MineCraft characters, mail boxes with letters inside, battleships, houses, All Terrain vehicles, and much more were the results of collaborative efforts by this classroom. The students enjoyed working with a partner to problem solve their ideas and steps to make their imaginations come to life.
