Google Sketchup is a Google app created for making 3-D buildings/models as well as creating 2-D shapes.
One day Mr Boyle asked 6 th class to do a project to make an Eco-friendly school. Mr Boyle told us to do this
because in maths we were doing shapes and he thought this would be good for 3-D shapes.
So 6 th class got used to all the tools first and soon we got started on our Eco-friendly school.
Sometimes we had to go to the 3-D Warehouse to download models that we were not able to make and there were a lot of models in it.
From all the buildings/models we built we were able to change the colours of it using the Paint Bucket tool.
When we finished our Eco-friendly school we had to get a good view of it so that Mr Boyle could see all that was made by viewing it from
different angles and to export it as 2-D format. When we finished that we showed it to Mr Boyle with our USB stick and he put it on the website.
