1st grade Architecture













I started out this first grade sculpture lesson by reading Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty.  We discussed the job of an architect.  Using paper bags, the lesson was to become an architect and design then build your own building.  Most student chose houses, but there were a few Wal-Marts, Pet Shops, Gas Stations and Sky Scrapers!  I hope you enjoy them as much as the kids enjoyed making them.
