For the past few weeks, several students have been hard at working applying geometry and measurement skills into a 3D math project. Students observed buildings in their communities with geometric shapes, lines, and angles. Then sketch and designed a plan to build a replica of that building.
Students have encountered MANY situations. Here’s a few words from their daily journals…This was the first day. it was challenging, everything was a struggle. Travis I know what materials I am going to use to build my model. For example I am using air dry clay for the cement brick wall. I am going to cut a cereal box out for my temple and I am using pipe cleaners or chopsticks or popsicle sticks for the roof. Aleiya I have a few goals in mind for my model building. First, I’m hoping to finish my roof and all of my clay laying by the end of the week. Secondly, on Monday I hope to finish m clay designs. finally I’ll finish adding things like the satellite dish and tether ball pole. These are my model building goals. Makana
Students have about a week left to finish their models, but here’s a sneak peak at what it looks like so far!!
