This workbook, a part of the Providence (Rhode Island) Preservation Society's preservation education curriculum for elementary school students, is designed to help students appreciate the significance and the beauty of Providence's architectural heritage.

With the aid of the workbook, students learn about architectural styles, use timelines, complete map exercises, take a walking tour of early Providence, observe the design of specific houses, go on a treasure hunt, work a crossword puzzle, take a cartoon quiz, and draw a house. A glossary of architectural terms is included. (PPB)
