I just love these colorful cities created by 2nd graders. We looked at the book WOW City by Robert Neubecker.(Thanks to Deep Space Sparkle for introducing us to him!) We examined the characteristics of the city skylines, windows, doors, and rooflines.
Week One: Read the book WOW City. then students used pencils to draw 4-5 buildings. filling up their 12 x 18 construction paper. After the buildings were created students painted with large brushes and vivid colors to complete their cities. Let Dry
Week Two: Students used painted paper to create windows, and decorations on the buildings,
then environments were added: roads, clouds, sun, trees, etc.
