3rd Grade - City

Students will create a cityscape after looking at buildings designed by I. M. Pei and Greco-Roman architecture and their influence on modern architecture, using a Sharpie, 12x18 white paper and markers (or crayons). Students will discuss what an architect is and the use of Line, Shape, balance and Unity in their work as well as the concepts of in-front-of and behind and how Greco-Roman buildings influence buildings of today. 

This would also be a great lesson with Rizzie


  1. I think the art work is very neat it looks like a big city that you might see on those television shows made for little kids like sesame street

  2. Thanks Steevo! It is a class favorite. I think I will add in James Rizzi next year. I just discovered his work and it would be perfect for this project.

  3. Very Cool! Love teaching architecture to the littles.
