I do a unit on skyscrapers with my 8th graders. we watch the mccauley movie skyscrapers. It is a fantastic movie. and then we do a scale model (2d) on kraft paper of a skyscraper of their choice. They make them to hang in the hall with the tallest bldg highest and calculate the scale for the rest. They are always fascinated by height.

Need your creative ideas! I am working with a committee to review and
realign our Art 8 Curriculum. We are writing a sample unit on
would love your input and ideas for lessons, artists, activities, etc.
We chose structures because it was challenging and not your ordinary worn
out concept! I'll share the unit when we complete it. Thanks!
