My boys are in elementary school and they don't make nearly as many dioramas as we do.
Shirley, "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design

Dioramas are three-dimensional models, usually done in miniature scale, and built to recreate specific moments from history or fiction. They are often used in schools for simple class projects. At Greendale, the Anthropology class had many such diorama assignments. However there were a few exceptions which were created specifically to promote a cause, recreate a scene from a movie and plan an elaborate heist. They first appeared in the Season Two episode "The Psychology of Letting Go".
