In this math, writing and presentation class, students each serve as president of a new architectural firm and are tasked with designing and building the city’s next skyscraper. Students study a kid-friendly history of skyscrapers and create a blueprint of their own stylized tall building. They then must weigh other considerations including the environment, traffic and surrounding buildings using Google Earth to find the perfect location for their project. Our expert architects create a three-dimensional model of the structure and present their work to invited parents.See a full curriculum preview: rightbraincurriculum.com/expertarchitects
