Eiffel Towers plus printmaking (3rd grade)

Students in third grade had a change to learn about the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.  We learned that the iron lattice tower is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.  It was built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair.  The tower is 1,050 feet tall or almost 81-stories.  The tower has three levels for visitors.
Empty cans make cools prints!

Sharing supplies is needed in art.

Helping hands is great!

Working hard in third grade!

Repetition of pattern across the paper.

Three levels and brown is like the real one!
