The fifth grade Academically Talented classes want to thank the Lisle Education Foundation for funding the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Preservation Trust’s program called Architecture in Education.  The math students experienced hands-on real world opportunities to learn about architecture, design, and the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright.  They were exposed to concrete geometric principle and developed them into abstract ideas. After learning these concepts, students designed a floor plan including scale and window and door placement. They then constructed models of their plan, created mind maps and presented their final product at a reception attended by parents and many guests.

All fifth grade Academically Talented classes read the mystery book The Wright Three by Blue Bailett. The setting of the book takes place at the Robie House in Chicago which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Then we took a field trip to the Robie House, saw Frank Lloyd’s Wright’s architectural concepts, and experienced the setting of the mystery.

We want to thank the Lisle Education Foundation and the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust for a allowing the students to be part of a fantastic program.
