The Monsters decide to create a model of their town and call it Mini-Monster Land. But in order to make an accurate model they need to take a good look at the different shapes and sizes of neighborhood buildings. At first they go to the roof of their castle to get an overview and wonder why buildings so far away are so tiny. "My thumb is bigger than Aunt Two Lips Flower Shop," says Multiplex. The Monsters explore concepts of perspective and then visit the town to see buildings up close. They encounter a triangular prism, cube, cylinder, and octagonal prism and discover information about the characteristics of these shapes. Our field trip is to an architect who shows us his process for drawing, computerizing and modeling his new constructions.
