Often when teaching a large eighth grade class, you need a project that everyone can be successful at without a lot of assistance. This is it! I distributed a photo of the Amalfi Coast in Italy and showed my own sample drawing. We talked about how they could pick and choose the architectural details that they wanted to use- and that the buildings did not need to be "realistic". They could put the greenery in- or leave it out. Bridges in- bridges out, and so on. I only required that the students outline their buildings with black pen, and use colored pencils. This project really illustrates how great it is that all students all work differently.
