We read a book on skyscrapers before we started this project. After the book, I handed each student a skinny and tall piece of white paper. On that paper we drew what we had learned about architecture, and huge city skyscrapers. Basic shapes were used to create the windows and building accents. Once finished drawing the building we went over all lines with black sharpie and cut them out. The next class, the students glued the building onto a colored piece of construction paper. Next to the white (emphasis) skyscraper, we drew tall basic buildings surrounding it. The students learned a lot about architecture, no more randomly placed windows that make no sense in the way of floors. Nice job 1st grade!
