I love all the little treasures that students/staff drop off in the MakerSpace. It encourages me that making, and all the thinking that comes from it, has become an integral part of our school. Kids bring in tubes, plastic bottles, boxes, broken toys and even furniture to be used in the space weekly. The little pile of goodies below was dropped off this week and will become part of an amazing creation...maybe a pinball machine or a pulley system. I just never know what our kids will create! So, thank you families and staff for supplying our space with materials that move our learning forward.
Earlier this Spring, my 2nd graders added a little creative flair to our robotics unit...we decked Dash out in the latest fashions! The kids put their designs on paper, created patterns out of newspaper, and then worked on their final projects. What a fun way to end our robotics study.
