Fernwood architects hired to design a skyscraper

The 4th-6th grade students are future architects hired to design a skyscraper to be built in 2121. Technology will be advanced, so their design could be as futuristic as they please. Their task was to draw the new skyscraper that will highlight the Chicago skyline. An architect came to class to help them with their designs. Look below to see the different skyscrapers they designed.

We debated if it was fair that the Petronas Towers are taller than the Sears Tower, what do you think? ☺

And they learned about "the Spire" which is the skyscraper being built in Chicago as we speak. Below is what the Chicago skyline will look with the spire.

  1. Where did you get this information about the spire? Never heard of it,.. U should do some 3d stuff with straws or toothpicks or popsicllesticks or even cards, that would be pretty cool.

  2. I didn't know about the spire until researching for this project! And I like your idea...the students would lovvvvvve using all different sorts of things! Paper mache could work with that too...it might be awhile until they can handle that...keep checking in ;-)
