28: Frogs

Posted by wonko on January 28, 2011 in amphibian |

The second model I learnt to make as a wide-eyed and eager 11 year old was this frog. I like that it’s proportions are correct, it has a puffy body and the back legs look right.

…so as a “getting to know you exercise” with my pastoral care group, I thought we could each make this model (as an exercise in listening and doing) and set out determined to explain this complex (lots of simple steps) model. I think we were pretty successful overall:

A Tutor Group worth of Frogs

It was interesting because the boys sat together (year levels 8-12), helped each other out, conversed, concentrated and listened, struggled spatially and got to inflate a frog through the vent in it’s bottom (hey, it is a boy’s school).

Very proud of my boys.
