  1. Drawing the following engineering curve through activities – ellipse (by trammel & thread method) on the ground/ plywood/ drawing sheet/ cardboard etc.
  2. Making different types of murals for interior/ graphic designs/ exterior decorations in colour using the knowledge of geometrical figures with the use of any Computer Software such as Collab-CAD and/or any equivalent pertinent software. 
  3. Preparing the section of solids (pyramids, prisms, spheres, etc.) with clay, soap, thermocol, plasticine, wax or any other material (easily and economically available). When the cutting plane is- parallel to the base, perpendicular to the base or inclined to the base.
