Adventures Group 5

Europe has many famous structures and artwork to observe and research.  Together we learned about the art and architecture of Europe by reading: Art is… by Bob Raczka, Young Frank Architect by Frank Viva, 13 Buildings Children Should Know by Annette Roader, Adventure Homes by Gerry Bailey, and Buildings by Karen Hosack.  We watched the movie From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler so when we visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art we could track Claudia and Jamie’s journey through the museum.  Group 5 architects explored their creativity by designing their own structures and artwork.  We continue to learn about the importance of standing by your friends and always being kind as we are reading Wonder.
