Aviva Kessler, a mud builder, came to Turning Sun School to teach the children cobbing, a technique of building with mud. She joined them for morning meeting to answer questions the Oakhurst class brainstormed. Then they got to their dirty work. The children measured sand and dirt and then dumped the mixture onto the tarp. The next steps included adding water and using feet to mix in the straw.
The children have been building with blocks and recycled materials, and now they are earth builders.
