Bugs in 3D

The juniors are headed on their merry way to iMax to watch Bugs in 3D. This relates to their inquiry topic of survival. The students have been exploring a range of minibeasts, researching habitat, prey, predator and the food chain. The students created 3D bugs using a simple yet effective app, 3D photos.

Images of minibeasts were preloaded onto the iPad and saved on to the camera roll. Juniors and Google Images are not a good mix, especially since it is hard to filter out inappropriate content. The students chose an image and used the paint brush to apply a 3D effect to a specific part of a photo. They screen shot using the standby and home key and saved it to the camera roll. They loved this activity!
