In Art class Kindergarteners learned about Architecture. They viewed different artwork about houses and buildings and looked to find the different parts of architecture. They found that the different parts buildings look like shapes. They found that many houses are shaped like rectangles and squares and have roofs that are semi-circles and triangles. They also noticed that buildings have windows which are shaped like are squares, rectangles and semi-circles. We also looked for other parts of buildings like steps, decks, chimneys, domes, door knobs, and other details too. Students then created their own houses by cutting and collaging different shapes together to create houses. They had to make sure the pieces were cut to the right size to fit on their houses and that the parts were in the correct places on their houses. When they were done collaging their houses they used watercolors to paint reflections of their houses in the water!
Great Job Kindergarten Architects!
