Part 1: Minds On
     Show a picture of a sports car                 Might have started with:
           o Q-How did this come to                       o Model                               SMART Notebook software, PPT etc.. as

     Show a series of Blueprints from the
      car – top, front, and side views
     Show pictures of interesting
      structures – including the ROM
           o Q – Who might have created              Architect
                these buildings?                     Designer etc…
Part 2: Action
                                                                                                Create blueprint drawings in

Part 3: Consolidation
   Students do a Gallery Walk and     Guiding Questions:
    visit the other groups’ work          Do your Blueprints views match your structure?
    with a post it note                   How do you know?
   Ask questions about work and          How does depth show up in your sketches?
    leave it at group station             How can this be justified?
Part 3: Highlights and Summary
                                          Constructed a 3D structure with linking cubes
What Math did we do today?                Sketched the top, side, and front views of the structure
                                          Verified the views on Illuminations
Part 3: Practice

            Groups can exchange their blueprints with another group and see if they can create an accurate model from the drawings
            Give EQAO questions: Spring 2008 #18, Spring 2010 -#7
