Google Sketch-up

I have been thinking of something different to show my 5th graders. It’s so blah outside now with snow, snow, snow and I wanted to get some “OOOhs” and “Ahhhs” out of them.

Enter Google Sketch-up! Last year it  kept crashing so I was hesitant but everything went great. Lauren Kenney, at Christa McAuliffe, reminded me of the great tutorials that it has so we played a couple of those and then they explored on their own. I love telling the kids that they, too, can have this program at home because it’s a free download!
