First Graders Practice 3D Attachment Techniques

Our first grade classes are getting ready to create creatures as part of their habitat unit. But before they begin, we wanted to introduce them to different attachment techniques they could use when they start to build. To help them out, one of our first grade teachers created this poster:

Because she keeps it in her class, I created this one (making use of the laser cutter) to keep in the Lab.

After a quick introduction to each technique, the students got into pairs, grabbed their materials and started to attach.

One of the groups got the idea to make their own poster. After others saw it, they wanted to do the same thing.

Next week they start to imagine and plan their creatures. After that, they collect recyclables and we'll start creating. Check back after Thanksgiving break to see how they are doing.
