Hi,I immediatly thought of Red Grooms a fabulous New York
Artist. While I was living there years ago he had a wonderful
installation in the city called"Ruckus Manhattan". If you can look at
the book. In short he made several environments you could walk through.
The themes varied, one was a subway,another was Stock exchange and of
course he did the Statue of liberty. He makes scaled down sculptures
which you can walk through. I've worked for years with preschool through
8th and especially younger kids have a great learning experience as
well as having fun making large pieces which they can feel,touch and
work as a group doing. Perhaps dividing the kids into groups of 4 or 5
and making giant paper mache sculptures of skyscrapers,people,Taxi's
The Statue of Liberty. I don't know what your time frame is but it would
be a great cooperative project.

Have fun,
