Landmarks Rise at Park Avenue

Landmarks Rise at Park Avenue
To learn about the mathematical concept of scale, sixth-graders at Park Avenue Memorial Elementary School built models of famous landmarks from all over the world.

The projects were done as part of the measurement unit. Students worked in groups and used cardboard from cereal and tissue boxes to create their replicas of landmarks, which included the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Empire State Building, Canton Tower and Burj Khalifa. They based their models off of the actual height of the buildings.
