Geometric Shapes & Tessellations
Recommended grades: 3 – 5
Learn about: Geometric shapes and problem solving through design
Overview: Students will design a simple tessellation for a 3D shape such as a cube, a cylinder, or a cone using 2D templates. Students will enjoy seeing their 3D shape come together, and will even be able to use it as a functional item, such as a pen holder!
Recommended grades: 3-5
Learn about: Fibonacci numbers and patterns in nature
Overview: Students will learn what a fibonacci sequence is, then discuss how it’s present in the patterns in nature. Students will observe how the sequence affects the structure of a spider’s web, and then Doodle their own spider’s web in order to visualise their learnings in a 3D object.
Geometric Collage Maker
Recommended grades: K-2
Learn about: Geometric shapes, how to calculate area and perimeter
Overview: In this lesson, students will have fun creating outlines for a collage of geometric shapes with the 3Doodler. They will then use crayon rubbings over their outlines in order to create a colorful piece of art.
Construct a 3Doodler City
Recommended grades: 6 – 8
Learn about: City planning, geometry, area and perimeter calculations
Overview: Students will identify the structures that make up a city (e.g. roads, buildings, bridges), and then analyze the way in which these structures are composed of lines and geometric shapes. Students will design 2D shapes and then Doodle over them to construct their own 3D structures. Each group will design one part of a city, then collaborate to form a whole city. This real-world, hands-on project combines math, problem solving, collaboration and technology.
