Kinder Architecture

This is an introductory lesson on architecture.  I talked to the kiddos about the job of architect.  We then looked at different kinds of housing.  I showed slides of single family homes, town houses, and apartments.  The children identified many details that they saw on a home including types of windows and doors.  They also pointed out the the smaller details such as mailboxes, shutters, house numbers, and building materials.

With Sharpies, they drew the shape of their houses and rooves.  Then they drew the details.  After the buildings were finished, they drew the things you might find in the landscape.  Finally, they painted the buildings with block tempera.
