Build It, and They Will Come! Experiences in 3-D [September 2013]
This activity is designed to provide a series of experiences that develop student understanding of how two-dimensional drawings can be translated into three-dimensional models and vice versa. Beginning with rich experiences in building structures, students move from creating their own concrete models to building structures from a variety of visual representations, including isometric drawings and orthographic and mat views.
