Study America Saturday ~ Illinois
This week we learned about Illinois in our Road Trip USA unit study. We watched the video "The States" on Illinois, completed our notebooking page, read Illinois Facts and Symbols by Emily McAuliffe, and then learned about Al Capone, Wyatt Earp, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
After looking at images of the Unity Chapel, the first reported design of Frank Lloyd Wright, we went on an architecture photo scavenger hunt. We walked around our downtown area looking for shapes in the architecture. It was fun to see that every building was comprised of shapes put together.
With the designs the kids come up with on Minecraft, maybe we will have some future architects or engineers!
