Architecture Adventure will be at Irving TODAY in the 3rd grade classes from 1:15-2:45. Third grade students will be given a 30-minute powerpoint presentation of the features of several house styles found throughout Oak Park. They will be taught what makes a house style unique and recognizable.
After the presentation, (1:45), kids will go back to their classrooms to design their own house on a large piece of corrugated cardboard. Volunteers architects will be in each classroom guiding the students as they design and draw. The houses will eventually be painted, and we plan to display them at Red Hen.
