The juniors are headed on their merry way to iMax to watch Bugs in 3D. This relates to their inquiry topic of survival. The students have been exploring a range of minibeasts, researching habitat, prey, predator and the food chain. The students created 3D bugs using a simple yet effective app, 3D photos.

Images of minibeasts were preloaded onto the iPad and saved on to the camera roll. Juniors and Google Images are not a good mix, especially since it is hard to filter out inappropriate content. The students chose an image and used the paint brush to apply a 3D effect to a specific part of a photo. They screen shot using the standby and home key and saved it to the camera roll. They loved this activity!
