Towers, domes, pinnacles---Golden Landmarks are found around the world. Your drawings of these architectural marvels gleam and shimmer!
Almost every culture and tradition marks its most important places by constructing beautiful architecture on those sites. Those buildings, which are created to inspire the people who view and use them, are often very large and ornate. Many have golden surfaces that reflect the sun so they sparkle and glow.
Locate, research, and compare important golden-surfaced structures from various cultures, such as the Golden Temple or Darbar Sahib, Amritsar, Punjab, India; the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand; the Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem, Israel; the Shrine of Shah-e' Cheragh, Shiraz, Iran; and the Cathedral of St. Sophia, Novgorod, Russia. Observe similarities and differences in these impressive architectural landmarks.
Choose elements of structures that you find the most beautiful, such as towers, pinnacles, doors, and windows and invent a structure in your imagination. Or select one impressive structure to represent.

Use Crayola Glitter Glue to highlight the gold sparkling in the sun. Dry.
