Freehand Geometry Drawing


This past week we did some freehand geometry. For FG (freehand geometry) we drew angles (without any rulers or protracters). We all drew 90 degrees, 45 degrees, 135 degrees, and 30 degree angles. All of ours came pretty exact. It was fun to see what we created!

Cartography



This Week we learned about cartography. Ricky and I each made our own map. Ricky make a map of Warcraft and I made my own map of the "Candylaria," my made-up islands.
All of the islands on my map were candies like Skittle and Frosting. To make my map, first I did a draft, then I drew the final copy on watercolor paper in pencil. Next, I drew over the pencil with colored marker, and finally I watercolored over the whole map.
Also in my map, there was a key showing the symbols that I put on the map, like marshmallow mountains. I really liked making my map!
