Construction Worker Dramatic Play

I put set up a work bench for the children to work with at the dramatic play area for our Careers and Construction Worker day. They really seemed to enjoy this. I heard a lot of construction worker discussion and socializing going on.
"Hey, I'm building you a kitchen Miss Chelsea!"
"What does this measuring tape say? Is it going to be long enough to make my project?"
What great thought processing going on!!
In the past I've also set up large blue print papers for the children to draw, measure and figure out their projects on. My classroom is a little smaller this year.......maybe next year I could shrink the blue print book. The large one is just so fun and exciting for them to work in.
