All Hatch 4th graders were treated to an exciting walking field trip downtown with the Chicago Architecture Foundation, where they had a wonderful time identifying columns, arches, trusses and many other architectural elements.

Inspired by Chicago architecture, and assisted by art teacher Molly Burns with volunteer architects Gaby Miramon, Scott Fortman, Lisa Chervinsky, Naaman Landers, Debra McQueen, Eric Davis, Julia Johnston and Pam Whitehead, the students are building their own structures using corrugated cardboard.
