Orthographic Drawing Worksheet | Isometric to Orthographic Drawing Exercises

(0)
Have your students get start drafting engineering drawings by practice taking an isometric view of an object and transforming it to an orthographic view!! Students are given a 3-D isometric view of an object and must draw the 2D orthographic view of the top, front, and side of the object and then use those drawings to construct full orthographic drawing with the side and top views all aligned with the frontal view.

Ted Talk Video Questions | Let the Environment Guide Our Development

(0)
This is a great fill in activity for a rainy day or even a sub day! This activity includes guided video questions for the TED Talk: Let the Environment Guide Our Development. Human growth has strained the Earth’s resources, but as Johan Rockstrom reminds us, our advances also give us the science to recognize this and change behavior. His research has found nine “planetary boundaries” that can guide us in protecting our planet’s many overlapping ecosystems. Link to the Ted Talk: Let the Environment Guide Our Development What’s Included: 1 page of questions | 10 Questions total, one open ended question Answer Key

Isometric Rotating Cube Stack Worksheet | 2D to 3D Cube Stack Exercises

(0)
Practice spatial visualization with this rotating cube stack worksheet! This activity prepares students to start drafting engineering drawings and to think more like an engineer! This is also great geometry exercise!!! Students are given a box representation of a stack of cubes.The number within each box represents how high the cubes need to be stacked. Students must draw the new orientation as a boxed representation and then draw the specified orientation in isometric form. Whats Included: 3 page worksheet with blank answer box 3 page worksheet with isometric dot answer box

Practice spatial visualization with this isometric drawing worksheet! This activity prepares students to start drafting engineering drawings and to think more like an engineer. This is a 3 page worksheet with a total of 11 cube stacks exercises. I provided two different version; one with a blank answer box and one with a dot paper answer box. Both versions have the same exercises. Exercises vary in difficulty. What’s included: 3 Page worksheet with blank answer box 3 page worksheet with isometric dot answer box Answer Key Directions: The boxes are a representation of a stack of cubes. The numbers within each box represents how high to cubes are stacked. Student must draw the 3D isometric form of the cube stacks. You may instruct your student to start at any corner they choose but, for uniform answers, start at the bottom left hand corner.
