Game Parts and More!!!
This week, we have two items that you can 3D print. The first one is the tiger sculpture we see on Thursday's field video. An easy way to get started is to download the file and print it out! Challenge students to make guesses about what might be printing and site evidence to support their ideas. We found this file printed best with linear supports.
The slideshow below shows you how to create linear supports
Resident Population Game
We have another series of files that will be needed for the lesson on Day 11 - The Resident Population Game. It will take some time to print out so we thought we would make it available now. We designed these files to work with standard size pattern blocks. It will take a while to print all the files, but that can help build excitement and anticipation! You can also let the students free explore the parts as they are printed so they can focus on learning the game when the time comes.
Here's one flow that might work for you:
All files are available to subscribers on the 3D Printed Wonders page for Mission: Tigers!
