The 1st Year Geography class made contoured mountain models. (Click on thumbnails to open an enlarged version of image.)
A number of the class explain what they thought of making the models:
Evan Matthews: "It was really fun to make the model. Mine was a sea with an island and a volcano."
Isabelle Byrne: "When I was making it I got a lot of paint and a lot of cardboard. To make it took two days. I enjoyed making it."
Daniel Eppel: "I really liked making the mountains because it took me about five minutes to make."
Jennifer Fehily: "I thought that making the mountains was really fun to make. I wish we always got homework to do with making things."
Niall Garvey: "Very interesting. I like how the models we made were 3D. I also like the designs on the models. It was a very interesting/fun project."
Oscar McHale: "To make the mountain we layered cardboard on top of each other and then painted them."
