Iggy Peck, Architect is the story of a young boy who has a passion for repurposing everyday objects, turning them into replicas of famous structures. This module explores the different types of architecture one could find whether traveling the world or investigating in the backyard. Students will transform into architects themselves and use classroom resources to construct their own original designs.
