Can Buildings Speak?

This title encourages children to look more closely at the shapes and patterns they find on buildings around them. It helps children to understand what a building's exterior tells us about its purpose and that its purpose may change over time. Children compare building materials used in the past with those used today. They are also encouraged to collaborate on a large-scale project-in this case, designing a stained-glass window for their school.
