Drawing Geometric Solids, Mostly 8th Grade

completed solids 8th grade 12.5.13 033I figure I’d better start separating the grades so the students could find their own work a bit easier.

The two above are examples done by Ms. Anna,  AKA Margie.  She always does a great job!

This student, whom I’ll call Ms. R refuses to let me take her picture, and yet she does nice work when she wants to.

This project stems from a project where the students made nets(an ODE term) and folded them into actual geometric solids.  the assignment I gave the students is here.

11.22.13 013

Looking above you can see some of the paper models the students drew, cut out,

and then folded into various geometric shapes.

A nicely drawn example of a shaded cube.

Another part of the assignment was to assign each face of the solid a dark, gray and light face.  The students used various types of dry media, natural charcoal, charcoal pencils,  and ebony pencils.  they learned that some of the media makes better dark blacks than others.
