Drawings from Invisible Cities

(0)
This is a resource that I have used for both homework and in class - could be idea for remote learning also. This activity is based on the amazing book - Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. This activity uses an extract from the book and students have to draw a response based on the description. The city I chose for this activity was Zenobia (this extract is available online) but this could be adaptable if you have the book and wish to study another city. I have also included starting points for students, which I have used. I used this activity as part of my year 8 architectural facades project. I have had some incredible responses from this activity!
