While the students were boating, the Willis Tower could not boast the distinction of being the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere because the final spire was installed on the Freedom Tower of One World Trade Center in New York City.

Prior to the tour, fifth-graders learned about some renowned Chicago architects, such as Daniel Burnham, Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright.

The kids also created their own imaginary cityscapes in art class based on the two point linear perspective drawing technique.

After the boat tour, the students made a quick visit to the Art Institute of Chicago to view the Thorne Miniature Rooms Gallery.

North School expresses its deepest gratitude to the District 62 Foundation, whose mini-grant made this memorable trip possible.
