This project pretends to persuade through a topic the application of perspective and how it works through the eight techniques combined and applied in objects to create different, dimensions, contours, shadows, sizes and others. It also pretends to demonstrate how each graphic tool can be implemented to design every single detail in an object to project perspective.

To

manipulate and recognize the graphic tools functions to create images with perspective, in the different types of graphic programs.
To

develop the ability to create illusion of depth and three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface, using the eight techniques of perspective.
To

present projects, topics or concepts combining the perspective techniques to simulate reality and visual intensity.

Students are invited to travel to the universe to discover what the solar systems is about. (They click on the rocket and go in an imaginary travel)

Students

observe every object and explore each planet clicking on them to get the information.
Teacher

opinions. Students create their own solar system using the computer and program tools.

THE SOLAR SYSTEM

Click on the rocket to travel to the universe

Click on the planets to get information

The Sun is the closest star to Earth , it is known as the center of our solar system. I would describe it as a giant, spinning ball of very hot gas, because it is fueled by nuclear fusion reactions. The light from the Sun heats our world and makes life possible. The Sun is also an active star that displays sunspots, solar flares, erupting prominences, and coronal mass ejections. These phenomena impact our near-Earth space environment and determine our "space weather."

Mercury, the planet nearest the Sun, is the second smallest planet in the solar system. Only slightly larger than the Earth's moon, Mercury's surface is covered with craters. I would describe it as a tiny planet with no rings or moons, and a rocky body like the earth,

Venus is know as the sister planet to the Earth, according to its characteristics, is one of the four solar terrestrial planet. Venus does not have any moons or rings, 80% of its surface consists of smooth volcanic plains.

Earth, our home planet, I would describe it as a beautiful blue and white ball when seen from space. As we know it is the third planet from the Sun, and the largest of the inner planets. There is something that makes earth different from the other planets, it supports life and have liquid water at the surface. Its interior is divided into four layers, each one has different characteristics and is made of different elements and minerals.

The Earth's one natural satellite, the Moon, is more than one quarter the size of Earth itself (3,474 km diameter). The structure of the Moon's interior is more difficult to study. The Moon's top layer is a rocky solid, perhaps 800 km thick. Beneath this layer is a partially molten zone. Although it is not know for certain, known for certain many lunar geologists believe the Moon may have a small iron core iron, even though the Moon has no magnetic field. By studying the Moon's surface and interior, geologists can learn about the Moon's geological history and its formation. The Moon doesn't produce its own light, but looks bright because it reflects light from the Sun.

Mars, Earth's outer neighbor, is the fourth planet from the Sun. Mars' bright appearance and reddish color stand out in the night sky. Impressive surface features such as enormous volcanoes and valleys are frequently obscured by huge dust storms.

Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. When approached from afar, its fantastic striped atmosphere gradually reveals intriguing clouds that move around the planet. Rich in historical and cultural connections, Jupiter is the site of recent comet impacts and continuing scientific discovery.

Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, has the most spectacular set of rings in the solar system. We now know that Saturn has 59 moons in addition to its complex ring system.

Neptune, which is usually the eighth planet from the Sun, is a very cold place. Occasionally, the ninth planet Pluto crosses Neptune's orbit and becomes the "eighth planet". Its bluish color comes from its atmosphere of methane gas. The planet has 13 moons and a very narrow, faint ring system.

Click on the rocket and back to the solar system

Uranus, the seventh planet from the Sun, has its spin axis almost in the plane of its orbit about the Sun. This produces unusual seasons and also causes unique magnetic and electric field structures. Uranus has a faint ring system and 27 known moons.

Through this project, it was experimented the ability to be able of creating a concept implementing the perspective through its techniques, applying the foreshortening to make objects seem closer to the eye, the shading when adding darkness, the overlapping when placing objects in front of others, and other techniques to get a meaningful idea about perspective.

Teachers should recognize perspective as a design element to make the teaching and learning process easier trough imaginary reality. Not only teachers but also students should be capable of use every single graphic tool and computer programs to apply perspective in projects, assignments, presentations and all those activities which purpose is to evaluate, introduce and present knowledge content.
