How can a five-story building be portable? What keeps bridges from falling down? Can animals be architects? Just what are the forces at work that make a building stand? 3-2-1 Contact: Architecture takes a unique look at principles of physics by looking at something that’s all around you—architecture.

The series has five, thirty minute episodes that uses music videos, animation and mini-documentaries to bring elementary and middle school students into the exciting world of architecture.

The episodes bring the world of design and construction into your classroom. Students will see how many kinds of structures -- houses, skyscrapers, circus tents, sports arenas, and even bird nests -- are built. Students will see how building relies on the principles of physics.

3-2-1 Contact: Architecture not only supplements your science curriculum, it can enrich your study of social studies, geography and art. The episodes take students on a tour to see how cultures around the world construct buildings and homes. Use the episodes individually or as a mini-curriculum on architecture. Down load the teacher's guide for discussion questions and hands-on activities for each episode.
