Students engage in the evolving recreation of our cherished city of Richmond by combining many of their favorite modalities, such as: Legos, blocks, railroad tracks, animals and folk, Hanukkah candles, and imagination!

The detail and dedication to the intricacies of what the students create demonstrate their depth of developing their own ideas and collaborating joyfully and respectfully. Children even welcomed animals to the city... some live in the zoo and some wander free.

Another student gathered the Hanukkah candles and placed them so gently throughout the city explaining they are streetlights.
