K/1 & 4/5 Classes Learn About Different Types of Architecture

NCS K/1 and 4/5 students had a visit from architect, Josh Johnson, today and discussed different types of architecture.  He had color photos of architecture from different time periods and from all over the world.  He showed the students a photo of a Greek temple motif and had them find that same type of architecture in other buildings in numerous photos they had to examine at their tables.   They were also asked to analyze the photos at their table, determine an architecture classification that fit several of their photos, and present their find to the class. 

Next, the K/1 students were given the assignment to draw a picture of a building by themselves.  Most of them incorporated into their drawing features of the buildings they had just examined in the photos.  Some of the pictures were amazing!  Next week, their assignment will be to write about the building they drew and its function or purpose.  It was great to see the students so engaged in learning about architecture around the world and processing what they were learning!
