Part 7: Try-it-out 2 Exploring the Spatial and Play
For part 3, you will create a playspace by building a fort in your home. You can use any materials you have available (sheets, blankets, boxes, twinkle lights, etc.) be creative. There are only a few rules:
1. Make a fort.
2. Get in the fort and spend at least 20 minutes inside. If you live with others, invite them to create and get in the fort with you.
3. Do whatever you want when you are inside the fort.
Using digital photos, document your process of making the fort, how the fort looks outside and inside, and what you did in the fort. Using this week’s readings, craft a photo essay analyzing your fort. (Use Hofsess et. al.’s work as an example of a photo essay.)
