I am a big fan of cross-curricular planning, and this lesson is one of my favorites. Each year at my school, the third graders study Russia during a social studies unit. Russia’s beautiful architecture makes a great connecting point between the classroom and the art room. I love that this project yields such varying results and that each student gets a chance to use his or her own interests to create a unique building and enhance his or her drawing skills.
