Vessel - LEGO Quest #3

For the third challenge of LEGO Quest, Olivia's goal was to design a vessel. According to LEGO Quest, this is the definition of the word "vessel":

1. a craft for traveling on water, now usually one larger than an ordinary rowboat; a ship or boat.

2. an airship.

3. a hollow or concave utensil, as a cup, bowl, pitcher, or vase, used for holding liquids or other contents.

4. Anatomy, Zoology. a tube or duct, as an artery or vein, containing or conveying blood or some other body fluid.

5. Botany. a duct formed in the xylem, composed of connected cells that have lost their intervening partitions, that conducts water and mineral nutrients. 

6.a person regarded as a holder or receiver of something, esp. something non-material: a vessel of grace; a vessel of wrath.

Olivia chose definition #3 by creating a utensil that holds pens and pencils.  She did a square design using a variety of different colors of blocks.

She is enjoying the LEGO Quests because they are challenging her to create things that she normally would not do. It's opening up her eyes to the wider possibilities of what can be made with LEGOs.
