Towers, domes, pinnacles---Golden Landmarks are found around the world. 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.
Students 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.
Students choose elements of structures that they find the most beautiful, such as towers, pinnacles, doors, or windows. Or select one impressive structure to represent.
Use Crayola® Metallic FX Crayons to draw your real or imaginary Golden Landmark. Blue paper works well for the sky behind your building. Fill the paper with intricate architectural details and include the building's setting, such as a lake or trees.
Use Crayola Glitter Glue to highlight the gold sparkling in the sun. Dry.
With the Crayola metallic colored pencils, write a description of what the building commemorates. Display it with the drawing.
