Content/instructions (how to do it) –

  1. Take a trip to a meadow with cameras. Students choose a plant or a flower and take pictures of it from many angles. If it's not possible to go to a meadow, students can use a book or internet to find a plant.

If the kids are younger, they can go to meadow and draw the flower they want to design. With Doodle3D kids make their drawing to 3D-design and print it.

  1. Students use their pictures and knowledge from meadow to make a 3D-desing with Tinkercad. 

  2. Optional  things to do: Start modelling by sketching, turn all models made by tinkercad to minecraft format and add them to minecraft world to create your class’s minecraft meadow.
