2nd GRADE--Cityscapes

The 2nd grade students were able to learn about cityscapes and skyscrapers through a powerpoint. We looked at different cities in the United States and around the world that have skyscrapers. We discussed that overlapping buildings makes a cityscape more interesting. We also talked about the fact that their buildings do not have to be rectangular. We looked at some buildings that were round, triangular, etc. The students learned the difference between the warm and cool colors and had to pick one color scheme for their buildings. Then they had to use the opposite color scheme for their background create contrast in their art. Finally the students were able to add patterns and shapes to their buildings to create their very own city.
