Using Dioramas in the Classroom

A diorama (di-a-rama) is a 3-D model that is placed inside some type of showcase.  The models can be life-sized but most are miniature.

rain_forest_diorama1Dioramas are made by placing objects in front of a painted background. The objects can be figures, stuffed wildlife, wax figures, real objects, or pictures of objects. The objects are arranged in a naturalic setting.

The scene within a diorama can be a replica of something from nature, a building, or even a room inside a building. One of the best examples of dioramas are scenes at museum exhibits.

Dioramas are a fun way to bring almost any subject to life. Use them in lessons about the oceans, volcanoes, and science. Be creative. Miniature objects, clip art and printables can all be used to create a amazing diorama.

The resources below will help you get started. Many include a list of the materials you will need need.

Free Samples from Dover

One of my favorite sites is Dover Publications. They make thin books filled with coloring pages, poetry, puzzles, clip art, craft projects and other activities.

Get free downloads of pages from some of their books to use in teaching. Kids love ‘em (and so do some adults).

I recommend saving the pages you want to your hard drive even after you have printed. This is because Dover keeps the pages on the Internet for a week or so then its gone.
