Crazy Conditionals!

Today each class learned about conditionals through a really fun activity.  Many students compared the process to a domino effect.

Micro:Pets


This year my students will be using Micro:Bits to learn about programming.  They had a blast with their first project which involved designing a pet for their partner using the Micro:bit to show emotions.

Simple Machine Projects

We finished the first round of Simple Machine projects last week.  So much fun to see the students use so many tools and materials from the classroom: vinyl, plastic, wood, Styrofoam, paint...

Maze Presentations

Yesterday was my last day with my first round of 5th and 6th grade classes.  Everyone set up their marble mazes to share with their class.  Students had the opportunity to try each others' mazes, leave feedback, and self-assess their own work.  It was awesome to see the variety of creations!
