Website Y Modelling - Google Sketchup  

I cover Sketchup with Year 6 each year and I always like seeing the reactions on their faces as they turn their designs into 3D and rotate around their constructions for the first time. Usually some of the children are so amazed by the capabilities of the program that they boast about how they intend to download it at home. Last year, for instance, I had one boy demonstrate some outstanding work that he had done adding fine interior decorations to a house and this year I had one child discover how to create a square-based pryamid by himself!
