As part of Geometry this term our students have been excited with the prospect of constructing scale models of other classrooms around New Zealand involving (first) 3d models and then Minecraft. The students are currently at the questioning stage. Thanks to our friends at Tawa Intermediate, Selwyn House in Christchurch and Mt Pleasant School our students have left comments on their class or individual blogs and sought information about the classroom layout.
Already the activity is paying learning dividends because a number of our students have realised that their questions need to be more detailed and more direct so that the 2d plan of the layout can be more accurate. The great thing about the blogging aspect
