Homeschool Ideas

This week students learned how to draw 3-D objects and how to use various shading techniques. For the younger children, I had pre-drawn cubes an
d circles for them to shade. The students caught on very quickly, and even the less-motivated among them completed their cubes and circles before class was finished.

The main point they took away with them was that light shines in a direction, so the side closest to light will be brightest and the side farthest away from the light will be darkest. They were sent home to look for shadows and to draw objects this week using their new techniques.
