Building Big Ben and Stone Henge

These photos are from our unit study of the British Isles. We pulled out our Landmark Flashcards (from the Target dollar bin) and showed the children Stonehenge and Big Ben.
A fine example of the post and
lintel architecture of Stonehenge.
I got out the classic building blocks and suggested we build Stonehenge and Big Ben. The children did the rest! Little Nephi insisted on a more colorful rendition of Big Ben.
Big Ben immediately prior demolition.
Later, we watched Disney's Peter Pan, which shows the Darling children land on the hands of Big Ben. Little Nephi squealed, "Big Ben! Big Ben!"
