Re: Architecture Lesson


Date: Mon Nov 05 2001 - 20:39:30 PST

One unit I do with third grade revolvedsaround the historical homes in our
area. The Historical Society has a video and pamplet describing the homes
currently on their list. After doing some detective work with photographs,
looking for architectural details, each student chooses one house to draw. We
use colored pencils and watercolors. It's so cute when the kids come to
school sometimes and tell me they saw "their" house. This lesson helps them
become familar with their local history as well as details such as clapboard,
casement windows, pillars,.Janet
