Rainbow City 2012

What is a City? What does it sound like? What does it look like?
Compare and contast city and country. I found art prints of famous paintings very helpful in this discussion.

All of the building rectangles were precut from scraps-great way to use up those bits and pieces at the end of the year.

This kindergarten project connects to shape and color identification and introduces students to using a ruler (to create a horizon line). Crayons, color pencils, metalic crayons and paper scrape details were added later to complete each cityscape and help it come alive!
