BLOG EXHIBITION DATE 2020
Hey Grade 3!
When considering that many factors influence the design and building of structures, you began an exploration of shapes to see how they FACTOR into design. You began working with an equilateral triangle as a basic geometrical shape. Then these shapes grew the triangle into a triangular pyramid, or tetrahedron. When you put four tetrahedrons together, a congruent shape was created. You were quite keen to enhance these triangular pyramids with textures and colors.
I especially enjoyed watching you learn about the Geodesic Dome and Dymaxium automobile and home. You can revisit this learning here. Also, if you are keen to build a dome at home, you can use this clip to guide you.
Check out the slide show below to see your process...
With a career spanning 25 years, I have worked alongside children from infancy to 9th grade in a generalist classroom setting. To my delight and surprise, an opportunity arose for me to become an art teacher in 2015. My first year was a learning experience and I expect that will be the case with all the years to follow.
