3D Printing in 6th Grade History Monuments Project

Several students in Mrs. Zedlitz's class this semester chose to design objects in Tinkercad and print them with our library 3D printer as part of their 6th grade History "Monuments Project." The title of this unit was, "The Grandeur that was Rome: Past and Present." In the following two minute narrated slideshow, Mrs. Zedlitz describes the project, the requirements, and how students creatively designed for and used 3D printing to meet its requirements. She also describes the "Classical Selfie" assignment, which also helped students deepen their knowledge and understanding of classical architecture.


Thanks to Mrs. Freeland for recording this interview and creating this video using the iPad app Explain Everything.
