Teach Kids to 3D Design for Teachers and Librarians
Everything you need to get students designing 3D objects
Even kindergarteners can learn how to design 3D shapes. You can learn how to teach them.
The software to make 3D shapes has been improving quickly. Not too long ago, it took a high-end computer and expensive technical software to model in 3D. Now a chromebook can do the same thing with simple to use shapes. Most teachers and librarians think that “I could never do that.”
You can do it. It is easy now.
This course will give you the introduction and practice that you need. It includes everything you need to know and a tried-and-true sequence of lessons to teach to your students. I taught my pre-k twins how to make tanks, rockets and more. Over the last few years, I have developed a series of lessons that help 5th-grade students make their first projects. The lessons are laid out in bite-sized chunks and all handouts are available to print.
Also included are common mistakes that student make and tips for successfully teaching kids how to design.
Your students can be designing by this time next week!
