An interactive and evolving resource where students draw 2D shapes incrementally to create a town map and 3D models.
Draw 2D Shapes
Students reveal the instruction cards in order, one at a time. Each card will give written instructions telling the students what type of shape to draw. A visual example is also provided which can help with sizing and placement of the shapes. The shapes needed to be drawn to complete the templates include: squares, triangles, circles, ovals, semicircles, octagons and trapeziums.
Interpret Simple Grid Maps
The Town Map cards have coordinates indicating where elements are to be drawn on the map. Students interpret the coordinates, locate the correct position and draw the 2D shape. The Town Features template includes some sections that are not numbered. Students must use problem solving skills to determine the correct location to draw the current shape.
Make 3D Object Models
Once students complete the Town Features template, they can use this page to create multiple 3D object models. They follow the Origami Box Step-By-Step Instructions to create a model of a castle, well and cart. These models can be placed on the Town Map.
