Take a trip out into your community, or into a town nearby. Look around you; what do you see? Using provided resources on different styles of architecture, identify and discuss the different architecture your see, how it is similar on some buildings, and different on others. Part of an OurStory module entitled Building Beautiful Buildings, this activity includes step-by-step instructions, field guide pages, and background information on architecture. OurStory is designed to help children and adults explore history together through the use of children's literature, museum objects, and hands-on activities.
