3rd Grade Learns Tinkercad

This week, the 3rd grade GT students started to learn how to design 3d objects using an online program called Tinkercad.  The students spent most of their time exploring the different tools and doing a couple of tutorials.  Our goal is to have the students begin designing different types of coral to print out, and possibly inventions that might help the coral reef by the end of this year.

The 3rd graders also got introduced to word problems where they need to apply what they have learned about algebra so far.  They caught on very quickly, so they actually flew through Lessons 1 & 2!
