The 125 page unit contains...
This overview is an outline of how I approach Victorian Architecture with my students. So much information is contained within these documents, of course, you can choose to introduce the information in whatever way you choose. This outline is just what I have found works for me and my student population.
*VICTORIAN HOUSE SLIDESHOW
This slideshow gives a brief overview of the evolution of Victorian Architecture. Examples of Italianate, Gothic Revival, Queen Anne, Second Empire, Richardsonian Romanesque, and Eastlake are included.
These cards are great to use in small-group discussions. Each card has a vocabulary term from Victorian Architecture, along with a photographic illustration of that term. Print out and cut one set per work table. I like to print them out on tagboard, laminate them, and then cut them apart. They will last for years and can be used in any way you choose to review vocabulary.
*STUDENT DRAWING HANDOUT
Students use this seven page handout as they draw their own Victorian house. This handout has many hand-drawn house elements, including doors, windows, porches, gingerbread, shingles, brick, wrought iron, and pinnacles.
*REAL HOUSE EXAMPLES - FULL AND HALF-SIZED
These high-quality photographs are used to review various elements found on Victorian houses. They can be projected and discussed as a whole class, printed and used as visuals, and even used as pictures for informative bulletin board displays.
*VICTORIAN HOUSE CHECKLIST
Students keep this checklist with them as they work on their house. Each production step, up to the coloring, is shown on the list. Tips for how I use this list with my students are included.
*FINISHED PROJECT EXAMPLES
These examples are included to show what the final product should look like as taught in my unit outline. This unit can be taught any way you’d like, however, if you choose to use my outline,I thought these may help visualize the end product.These examples include a teacher drawing and a few examples of finished student work.
*VICTORIAN ARCHITECTURE PUZZLES
These puzzles include a word search, crossword puzzle – with and without a word bank, and a fallen phrase. Students love to do these whenever they are ahead on a step or have an extra few minutes. Send them home, or use during indoor recess to reinforce vocabulary.
*VICTORIAN ELEMENT PLAYING CARDS
I lthink this is my favorite part of this packet! There are so many things you can do with the set of cards. My favorite game to play is Go Fish. This game requires students to ask for cards by looking at the illustration and calling out the vocabulary term listed at the top of the card. It is an excellent way to reinforce new vocabulary.
*VICTORIAN HOUSE MEMORY GAME
I love playing this game with my students whenever we have a few
minutes. It really allows them to focus on the different elements of the houses they are viewing.
