Cityscapes looking up - grade six

It has been far too long since I've updated - being 34 weeks pregnant makes it very unappealing to sit at my computer and edit photos. I have, however, been dying to share this project for a while, so tonight I finally bit the bullet and got around to editing them!

This is another great point of view lesson that I did with my grade 6 class. We started off with a tutorial on how to draw overhead perspective (if anyone is interested in this, let me know and I can post it!) Then I showed them how to add simple windows and doors. They traced everything with Sharpie, and colored in using markers (not my favorite technique, but I just couldn't think of anything that would work better for this project.)

As usual, I'm so happy with them!


  1. wow they are all amazing but the second one by far my favorite.

    1. the second one really made use of 3D in their buildings!

  2. when you have a chance, can you post your tutorial for this lesson? i would love to see the steps you did with them to get to these fantastic results! -jules

  3. I would love to have the instructions for this!

  4. I would love to see the instruction. can you please post them. :-)

  5. Hi could you email instructions?

  6. Great pictures!! I have been looking for something new for my 6th graders to do when I teach my perspective unit. This project is really cool and I think the students would really like doing this one. When you get time I would love to have the lesson plan. Thanks!!!
