What does the Torah portion have to do with 3D printing?
In the 3rd grade Parashat HaShavua curriculum (TaL AM), each Parasha features a symbol presented as a riddle; through the study of the Parasha the students discover the link between this symbol (which is the central message of the portion) and the Parasha. At the end of each Parasha lesson the students illustrate a coloring page with the Parasha symbol. At the end of each Chumash unit, the coloring pages become a booklet.
This year the students are also creating a 3D printout of the Parasha symbol/shape. All of the shapes are placed on a ring and the students have a visual representation of the central messages from each Torah Portion.
