- Students will develop an understanding of 3D objects
- Students will be able to identify different types of 3D objects
- Students will create a 3D object of their own
- Access to computers
- Poster paper
- 3D modeling software (SketchUp, Tinkercad, etc.)
- 1 hour
1. Begin the lesson with a discussion on 3D objects. Ask the class what they know about 3D objects and how they can think of them.
2. Introduce the types of 3D objects, such as cubes, cylinders, pyramids, and spheres. Ask the class to brainstorm other 3D objects.
3. Show examples of 3D objects on the board, or have students volunteer to come to the board and draw them.
4. Divide the class into small groups and give each group a poster paper. Ask them to come up with different ideas for 3D objects and draw them on the poster paper.
5. After the small groups have completed their drawings, give the students access to the 3D modeling software and guide them through creating their 3D objects.
6. Let each group share their 3D objects with the rest of the class, and once the presentations are over, ask the students to complete an exit ticket summarizing what they have learned about 3D objects and how they can be created.
- Observe students' participation in class discussion and small group activities
- Have students complete an exit ticket summarizing their understanding of 3D objects
