Vanishing point is not too hard for grade 3’s to grasp if you start with the concrete and move to the abstract.

Concrete:  Kids stood in a line along one end of the field.  I stood in front of them and they measured me my hight with hands.  I walked away from them (eventually running away as the field is quite big!) and they noticed that I got smaller as  I went further away.  They also drew a line from their feet to me showing that “I went up in the picture” as I went further away.  As I ran closer and almost run into to them (hehe!) I grew in size.

Then we look a look at the fence from one end and measured it with our hands noticing the same concepts again.  They were fascinated!

When we looked at the pictures on the internet in class they understood.  When we made our own vanishing point houses and road they were well prepared and most did a very good job of it.  So proud!
