I first thought that I could get a copy of the technical drawings of the school, but then decided that they needed the experience of measuring.
- Understanding of measuring in mm
- Understanding how to measure something that it longer than the measuring tape
- Understanding all the information that they need to collect.
- Working together to measure and record the information.
We definitely need to do more measuring activities so that when they start working out how big to make their designs and making scale models of them, they have a clearer idea of what to do.
We then sat all together in the classroom afterwards and compared notes. The measurements that they took were added to two diagrams on the whiteboard.
This information has started to be put together on a scale drawing using Adobe Illustrator.
This is the plan view that has been completed.
