Grade 5 – 3D Pixel Pokemon

This was a very nice project and the kids really enjoyed it! They were asked to first create their own, unique Pokemon. They were then given a piece of mathematical paper (with a grid) and told to lightly draw their pokemon on this paper in pencil.

They were then shown how to transform this organic shape into one made out of square pixels. Once they had done this they were told how to make these pixels ‘3D’. They had to draw a line from each corner going diagonally left and up to the next corner of their grid paper (but not going through their Pokemon!) Once they had all of these corner bits done, they could link the corners with a line. It took a little explaining to get this process going but, once I had shown them an example or two of me doing it, the learners got it! I loved their creations!
