I got this idea from Artsonia, the teacher from Cedar Creek. The drawings are based off the book Wow! City! The book is way too juvenile for 5th grade, but the pictures sure are nice. We worked on making our buildings 3-D, as well as overlapping. We talked about using variety in the buildings. 5th graders had to include at least 5 buildings, 2 places that overlapped, 3-D buildings, and use variety. Craftsmanship was also part of this project. Most students really enjoyed drawing and painting these. They took about 2 hours total, though I have a couple that are still not finished.
