Architecture -- 2nd grade







Frank Lloyd Wright:  The 2nd graders discussed Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings.  We analyzed how he integrated his buildings with the surrounding nature.  The students worked collaboratively to build intricate buildings out of wooden blocks.  Next, they represented these buildings with a visual drawing and infused them with their own creative elements.

Oh I love this project! What a fun combination - my favorite architect, building with blocks, and quirky drawings. My daughters will love this.
