The Amalfi Coast

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.
