Landmarks tell a vital part of a nation’s story. Often, the story of the landmark’s design and construction is also fascinating but overlooked. These FREE Architects and U.S. Landmarks Fact Cards give students a place to start exploring these stories by introducing them to 32 landmarks and their architects.
This will go along great with a STEM unit study on architects and architecture!
This FREE Architects and U.S. Landmarks Fact Cards unit starts with 4 cheat sheets that list 32 U.S. landmarks along with key years (such as the year it opened), its location, and its architect(s).
Next are 32 fact cards that include an image of each landmark along with the information from the cheat sheets. At the end of the unit are 32 blank fact cards that include the images of the landmarks and space for students to fill in the information.
These can be fun to use on their own or to use to launch other projects. Younger kids might enjoy finding all the locations mentioned on a map. Older kids might want to research some of the architects mentioned and discover if they designed other famous landmarks.
Kids of any age can also enjoy coloring the images of the landmarks if they choose. It’s a simple, no-prep activity that can lead to further research and discovery.
