Students learned about skyscrapers and architects through looking at photos of buildings and skyscrapers in large cities.  We watched 2 short youtube videos showing a skyscraper being built and the history of skyscrapers in New York City. We also learned during week 3 that many Christian missionaries serve in large cities across the United States helping needy people and sharing the god news of Jesus Christ.  The students enjoyed listening to the music of Chris Tomlin’s “God of This City”. In art class as the students drew and painted thier cityscapes, we talked about overlapping the buildings and using a variety of building shapes and designs. Students explored art history by looking at cityscapes created by master artists Jacob Lawrence and Georgia O’Keeffe.
