In 4th grade, we learn about Russian Architecture - Onion Domes!
We looked at cathedrals in Russia, especially St. Basil's Cathedral.
I pass out a step-by-step handout (shown below) and we practice drawing the architecture on paper first. Once they feel comfortable drawing the Onion Domes, they may switch to Scratch Boards.
Scratch Boards are awesome sheets that either look black or white but when you use a stick, you scratch away the black to reveal the color underneath.
I'm in my 6th year teaching art in Becker, MN. Time has really flown by! Wowza!
