Have you ever wondered how a dome is built? The first dome of the U.S. Capitol, completed in the 1820s, was made of wood and covered in copper. The magnificent dome we know today was completed in 1866 and is made of cast iron! Young learners will be introduced to the architectural significance and strength of domes by learning about the U.S Capitol current and past buildings. Afterwards we will work together to build domes of our own using newspaper, tape, and teamwork!
