Surfside City: A Collaborative City Built by Students at P.S. 329, The Surfside School

Students in grades PreK through 2nd grade are building a city together in the Art Room!

As an introduction to this unit, students discussed what we already know about cities (what is a city? what belongs in a city?), and then we moved on to look closely at Romare Bearden’s The Block (The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a wonderful interactive webpage dedicated to this artwork if you are able to share this with students.

There are, of course, many components that make up a city. Below are images from different lessons within this larger unit.
