The grade 6s have been creating Shape textbooks in their Math classes using Pages. Each student was give a selection of shapes to research and then their books were planned out using a standard structure of:
- Cover page
- Shape sections
The main body of the books were the shape sections for which five shapes had to be described, including an overview of each shape, a technical drawing and pictures of the shape in real-life
As well as Pages, the students also used Google Drawings to create the shape’s technical drawings and the screenshot function within OS X to insert these into their books. They also used a few of the more advanced features within Pages: the drawing tool to outline their shapes on real life photographs; automatic page numbers and title headers; and borders, shapes and picture frames to enhance the layout of their content.
Here are a few screenshots of the books:
