Introduction to Sketchup - Tutorial and Creative Design Lesson
The Sketchup Basics project takes students with no previous knowledge of Sketchup step-by-step through the basic commands and then challenges them to apply those skills in a project of their own. The project uses Sketchup (free CAD software download). Students work individually to create a scale model drawing of a house using Sketchup (CAD) and then create a new building of their choice using the skills they learned. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be adapted for younger or older students.
