Campbellsville High School art students recently made 3D letters out of cardboard.
In Jo Ann Harris’s class, students recently studied differences between two- and three-dimensional objects.
Students learned that 2D objects have width and length, but 3D objects also have depth.
As a project, students were given cardboard, glue and tape to make a 3D letter.
They could choose the first letter of their first or last name, or a letter that has special significance to them.
Students first designed their letters and cut them out, and then glued them together. Afterward, students painted and decorated their letters.
The goal of the project was to give students hands-on experience with 3D objects, and to help them think in three dimensions instead of two.
