Blanket Forts

As online learning continued, I challenged my engineers to build a fort with loose parts that they have around their homes. I encouraged them to use the Engineer Design Process (Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve), and to make blueprints of their designs before they began construction. For inspiration, I shared a Wiki site with ideas for blanket forts. As I receive additional photos, I will add them to this post.

Some problems to solve:
How many rooms will be in your fort?
How will you keep the blankets up?
Will there be any windows or doors? How about a skylight?
Will there be light inside your fort?
