OPEF (Oak Park Education Foundation), the 2nd grade team, and two art teachers all joined forces as second graders completed a community building project. Students walked around Oak Park and looked at the amazing architecture. In the Art room, students were given a blue print of a building in Oak Park. After learning about scale and how tall their lego scaled model of their building needed to be, students began work. They had 3 references photos of the building and made their models 1/60 the size of the original buildings.
