Skyscrapers of the World
Santa Barbara does not have any skyscrapers...not yet anyway! In this experiential learning project first graders build 5 of the 10 tallest skyscrapers out of cardboard boxes. These skyscrapers end up towering over all of us, creating a mini-city in our classroom. First graders begin this unit by researching existing famous skyscrapers and their locations...


I am going to be an "architect" and build an even taller building!
