Pocket Sketch Notebook

One of my assignments is to ask students to carry a pocket-size notebook and tape measure, and measure/record two things a day. This exercise helps them learn, and consequently internalize, sizes. Another assignment is to orthographically sketch everyday items. This helps them understand the relationship between 2D and 3D.
