Bloxel Love!

This is our first year using Bloxels.  We acquired 15 sets through a LSDF grant that involves sharing materials between 3 elementary buildings.  I LOVE what Bloxels have done for my kiddos.  We have worked through our design thinking framework and the thinking is so evident!  I have had to learn right along with and beside the kids.  My kids are planning, problem-solving the basics necessary to create a game (saving, building, failing, fixing), helping one another, watching tutorials to learn, consulting kids who have mastered the game, learning more at home, redesigning where necessary and having fun in the process!  What a great way to end the school year.

Collaboration!
Teamwork!
Watched tutorials, consulted the pamphlets, plan in front of her, and now ready to begin
learning more at home, redesigning where necessary and having fun in the process!  What a great way to end the school year.
