I will be showing you how to make buildings out of match sticks. This will take A LOT of patience. You will just need matches, time, and hot glue.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Preparation
I began by cutting over 10 boxes of matches heads off and putting the sticks into a bucket.
Step 2: Base.
I started by overlapping matches to make a double wide long match pole. I then connected it with 2 matches in top and bottom to form a slanted rectangle. Two of these were then put together to form an arch. I then used more matched to form the arching middle.
Step 3: First Third
I then glued all the sides together to form a three dimensional shape. This base was then lined with match sticks to form a railing.
Step 4: Middle Half
I then made the second half by doing the same thing that I did for the base. After this was done. I put it together and added joints so they would all connect.
Step 5: Finally
I then made a very tall trapezoidal pyramid that I placed on top for the top half. I then placed a triangular dome on top to form the tip and then you are done!
