This page will contain information about the Grade 7 and 8 assignments at Winona Public School. This information has also been given in class. Students should have this information from the assignments discussed.

In an effort to reduce the amount of printed paper, students are asked to copy the pertinent information and to use the printed information in class. Students may refer to the web site if unsure.

 

Current Assignments:

At any given time, you should be no more than two pages behind with the items on this list. Both Grade 7s and 8s should have

  • Tool form - at least two tool licences
  • Entry note
  • Screwdriver note
  • Symmetry frog
  • Butterfly
  • Snowflake
  • Three good 3D boxes on green paper
  • Three good 3D cylinders on green paper
  • 6 isometric shapes

Additionally, Grade 7s should have

  • Orthographic drawings of the simple puppet
  • Isometric drawings of the simple puppet
  • 1 isometric drawing of the puppet detail
  • Constructing letters 1
  • Constructing letters 2 
Grade 7 Computer Assignments

Day 1:

Using the Alice program on your TDSB computer, follow the in-class tutorial to create a simple scene with a person moving in 3D space. Explore how to make the character move using repetitive script instructions and loops, and to move in a square. Explore how to make your character move its arms and legs, to wave, and how to return the character to the origin, (x,y,z) at (0,0,0)

Day 2

Develop the ‘Man on Island’ animation. Follow the instructions on this Google Doc

Here is an example https://youtu.be/1qcbiDrO23c

Day 3

Develop and save your own animation with at least two characters dancing. The first character should enter a room at (0,0,0) and begin to show a dance that consists of movement in the space, and also has arm, leg, and head movements, in a looping pattern. The character must dance in all four quadrants of the room, ending at (3,0,2). 

Next, a second character should enter the room and join the first character in a dance. This could be a side-by-side dance, or in a more challenging script, the characters will dance in mirror-mode, with elements of symmetry and mirroring in the dance. 

Sophisticated animations will also make the camera move around the room and zoom to show facial expressions in at least one scene.
