“Bring ideas in and entertain them royally, for one of them may be the king.”
- Mark Van Doren
I am thrilled to share the wonderful 3D spaces and content creations of our Middle school students.
Just in time for the celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday last March 4, pages of his books came to life as students designed their virtual reality environments using CoSpaces. “CoSpaces, as described in their website, is an intuitive educational technology for students to create anything in 3D, learn to code while having fun, and connect with the curriculum.”
In this activity, the students were asked to choose a page from the creations of Dr. Seuss and design its virtual environment. The students had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with customizing objects, using flexible shapes and adding various environments. With this, they learned how to manipulate the various characters and objects to re-create a scene in the story.
Here are some of their wonderful virtual environments:
“In a people house” by Dr. Seuss writing as Theo LeSieg illustrated by Roy McKie
“I had trouble in getting to Solla Sollew” by Dr. Seuss
This is for you Dr. Seuss, Happy 114th Birthday!
