Third Grade Skyscraper Project

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

During their study of “the city,” third graders learn about architecture, innovation, and urban development. They are asked to construct their own skyscrapers at home, based on planning they have done in class, including the materials they will use, which incorporate everything from toothpicks and aluminum foil to marshmallows and sugar cubes. Students discuss the physical and social impact that the skyscraper has on the urban landscape, and what their own skyscraper might be used for.
