**A DIORAMA is a model representing a scene with three-dimensional figures, either in miniature or as a large-scale museum exhibit. Dioramas are usually created either on a flat foam poster board, in a box, or on another flat surface. You may secure supplies such as “army men” from stores such as Michael’s, the School Box, or even possibly Wal-Mart or Target.
