Geometry Hidden Behind the Old Walls (EN-CUR-159)
Students learn about three-dimensional solids and this is the first part of this topic. For Art, they will make a fantasy castle/burg and write a story in their mother tongue. Students will have to find three different castle/burg images (painting, photo, sculpture, etc.), find geometry solids hidden in their architectural elements, sketch/construct them, make groups of similar solids and make a short presentation of their work to the class. After that, students will collaborate all together to make one fantasy castle/burg using solids (boxes of different sizes and shapes or own made solids). Finally, they will decorate their work of art and think of a fantasy event that took place there.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
