Making Adobe Bricks

Adobe brick making can be a great educational activity.

When conducted properly, an Adobe class is an event that children will have fun with, as well as learn from.

The direct relationship between doing the work to make the adobe bricks, and building something from them, can easily be tied to existing structures that are centuries old!  The modern and historical, social, cultural and scientific applications of adobe bricks are relayed to the student in a personal way that no amount of "book learning" will ever achieve!
