5th Grade Metropolis

The 5th graders in Mr. Adams’ class have just finished a unit exploring the beginnings of architecture. After looking at many images of cities and noting the patterns and shapes, students set about drawing their own cities using rulers and shape templates. No free hand drawing was allowed. They filled their cities with windows and balconies, smoke-stacks and stairs and then used light boxes to trace their creations onto a new piece of paper. The new piece became a painting in which students were only able to use one color but with as many shades and tints as they could create within their monochromatic world.
