Blooms Taxonomy

Hello everyone! I decided to make Blooms’ Taxonomy Prop for my project. The inspiration came from my instructors in the CAE here at UNH-M! Since I am a peer tutor, we work with the Bloom’s Taxonomy framework frequently and I thought it would be super cool to have a tangible prop to show future Peer Tutors during lecture!

Here is an image of the inspiration:

I wanted to create the basis of a pyramid, so I made a tetrahedron with 6 different levels. I wanted to be able to assemble/disassemble each layer like Legos. In order to do this, I drew two circles (10 mm) on each level. I then extruded them about 9 mm. After that, I combined the level on the bottom with the one on the top, and cut the peg into the next piece. After this, I used the push/pull command on the holes (about -1mm) to make the pieces align.

Here is what the process looked like:

Creation of the entire pyramid with different colors to differentiate
