Build the Scene

Describe to kids how they can start building their own scenes by selecting the environment that they will work on it

  1. A preinstalled folders that contains assets for different environment is added to the project.
  2. Discuss with the kids what is the environment that they will build and what they will need to build.
  3. What is the expected assets that they will find in each environment.
  4. Also, you can go to assets store and download from a wide group of assets that is online ans many are free.

 

 

Building Environment

Start to build the environments using assets

  1. Drag and drop an asset for the base of your environment.
  2. Drag and drop assets from the environment folder that you have choose in the scene view.
