“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin
Architectural concepts offer a unique way to teach basic core curriculum standards. Architecture is multi-disciplinary and incorporates subjects such as math, history, science, fine arts, technology and logic as well as rudimentary design concepts such as form, color, texture, and pattern. Students achieve a unique type of learning that is hands-on and encourages creativity while exploring tasks.
Below are resources developed by local architect/teacher teams from our past programs. Check back often for additional activities and lesson plans to use in your own classroom.
