This is an engaging project when you are looking for a collaborative work with which all students can feel successful. These look great displayed together as a continuous cityscape and can also make a great “Can you find the Eiffel Tower? The Burj Khalifa? Hagia Sophia?” interactive bulletin board display. This article about inspiring architectural marvels and this article about watercolor techniques are two great resources to use during this project.

Download and use the worksheet below to help inspire independent and thorough research of particular structures. Students can transfer their sketches from their worksheets directly onto the Styrofoam to create their printing plates.
